My passion for Fiber Art started at a very young age. Creating with wool was only natural in my native country of Uruguay, where the number of sheep far exceeds the number of inhabitants.
My beginnings were in tapestry and knitting. Quilting, free style embroidery, yarn bombing and fiber installations followed my ever-evolving fiber path.
The color, texture and 3D characteristic of the yarn itself gives me total freedom to experiment; painting and sculpting with natural materials.
After attending law school in Montevideo, Uruguay and moving to the United States, I saw a chance to pursue my passion for art and creating. I graduated from Parsons School of Design in NYC, so that I could fulfill my creative side. Since then I have discovered that making art is the best way of taming my monkey mind from jumping from one place to the next.
Natural fibers also have a mind of their own. We only need to listen to them and sometimes they perform the art themselves.
I now live and work in Miami, Florida.
