Born in Montevideo, Uruguay.
Lived in Nicaragua, Italy, Chile, and Germany. Discovered collage a couple of years ago, while living in Berlin and has become my work/ addiction ever since.

I work with the feminine representation that is found in different printed media of mass circulation, such as magazines, posters, museum catalogues and used books. I am interested in understanding the visual power of collage, that allows me to inquire directly on the narrative that has existed on the models of representation regarding women, form the beginning of art until now.

All the clippings I work with, are original and I try to play a lot with the format, these being round, triangle, non conventional, being large or small scale.
