CRITICAL REVIEW

In her creation she starts from a figurative language that with subtlety and a specific manner interprets reality, while in her last decade there comes to being a vision where the consonance of forms and the possible harmonies within the compositional structures, mainly in wood, become important, reality remaining a point of reference. Even in the monumental art, the artist is more interested in making figurative plastic structures capable of showing not only the physiognomic features, but also the meaning of the lives and creations of the people they represent.
