Describe your early memories of your emerging talent as an artist?: 
Since I was a little girl I love drawing. I was lucky enough to travel and the places I enjoyed most were Art Galleries. Watching at some paintings transported me to places with no time and no space... on year 2000 I saw a painting by Egon Schiele and it touched me so deeply that I decided to pick up the brushes myself.

Role of figurative art: 
Nowadays our world is crowded with images: photograhy, movies, publicity, tv and all media. There are so many than we hardly "see" them. But FIGURATIVE ART does not have anything to do with those banal images. Luis Caballero says that Painting is just the opposite: the sacralization of an image....and I agree with this. A Figurative painting is a charged image, it is the result of the visual digestion of a painter, that's why a good painting will always catch our attention, it is a "pregned" image, it has something of the artist inside. And it has its own life as well ... that's why it enraptures us!
