I was born in Venezuela in the 1970s and have lived internationally for the past 17 years. For as long as I can remember, drawing was my favorite thing to do. I started to paint in 2003 when I moved to Egypt for work in the oil industry. Since then I have been painting continuously and participating in shows and exhibitions in Egypt, the U.S., and now the U.A.E. Since the time I was a young girl growing up in Venezuela, I’ve always enjoyed drawing, painting, and making unique arts and crafts. It was just a hobby for me for many years, despite many people expressing interest in my work and encouraging me to take it professional. In 2018 I moved to Dubai where I have continued to create using various mediums and styles, focusing largely on the iconic architecture of the city. What thrills me the most is to see a viewer’s emotional response when they genuinely connect with a painting that I’ve poured my passion into. I love sharing my vision of art with the goal of bringing joy.
