Biography

Born in Argentina, I studied Sculpture and Painting at the National Academy of fine Arts in Mexico City (1976-1979). I spent a big part of my life travelling around the world, finally settling with my family in Australia in 1996.

I enthusiastically returned to working in sculpture in 2009; a passion that lay dormant for many years through the life distractions of motherhood, work and several international moves. I joined the Association of Sculptors of Victoria in 2009 and have been exhibiting in Melbourne since 2010.

Sculpture is my passion - my aim is to create sculptures that instil emotion and sensitivity. Creating is a journey, and the final creation is often far from the starting point. My heart’s desire is for my work to offer the public as much pleasure, as it gives me in bringing the pieces together to life.
