About the Artist
I am a painter and fiber artist living in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina.
I was born and grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After living and working in Argentina and Colombia, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in California, where I pursued my interests in contemporary quilting and textile design.
In 1995 I relocated to North Carolina to the Triangle area with a strong desire to establish my artistic career in fiber design and quilting. During the initial years, I dedicated myself to learn the many techniques of fiber painting and eventually became quite proficient at them. I taught quilting and fabric manipulation classes and I have had my textile artworks exhibited in shows in Raleigh and Cary, NC. My work in fiber painting and fabric dying naturally led me to become very interested in painting as a medium in itself and to the study of color.
I have exhibited my paintings at the North Carolina Museum of Art, the City of Raleigh Museum and the Greenville Museum of Art, at galleries in the Triangle Area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Cary) in NC, and several of them are in private art collections.
