Statement:
Throughout my entire artistic career I have devoted myself to investigating traditional textile techniques from diverse cultures, especially Pre-Columbian techniques, trying to adapt them to my creative needs. Abstraction has always been present as an aesthetic aim, informing my choice of materials, forms, textures and colors. The simple proportions are guided by an intuitive sense that avoids the use of mathematical formulas.

There is neither message nor interpretation. This simplification and freedom from conceptual constraints combine to reveal a language that conjures up other impressions, such as emptiness and the need for austerity and sensuality, silence and aloneness.
