“Blindness for Borges was yellow. What comes next? How to find the equation? That one, the one and the diffuse one; the one that contains the murmurs of each story, worlds full of visions and letters of Babel. Then I will ask the silence for a wish.”

The mix of textures and the use of a very selective palette play a preponderant role in her work. Her space management is as bright as her work. The way of positioning the elements in the plane generates a tension that makes the work vibrate.
