I was born in Medellin, Colombia, South America. There, I received an Associates Degree in Fashion Design. Soon after, I moved to The United States and received a B.A. in Art and Spanish from Otterbein College, and a MFA in Printmaking from The Ohio State University
Over the past 20 years, I have split my time teaching and making art professionally. I am currently a faculty member of the art department at Ohio Dominican University. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. In 2008, I was awarded the Artist in Residence Exchange in Dresden, Germany by the Ohio Arts Council. In 2016 and 2017 I received a printmaking award for my work in the Ohio State fair Fine Arts exhibition. Currently, I am a member of the Phoenix Rising Cooperative, in Columbus, Ohio.
