I was born in Puebla Mexico, and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design from Universidad Femenina de Mexico and a Diplome’ de Maitre de Formation de Pebeo in Art from Provence, France.

I have two certifications in Children with Special Needs: Physical Disabilities and The Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) by NAMI Eastside (National Alliance on Mental Illness). In Mexico I ran my own Interior Design business while teaching art at a popular television show. I worked for more than 10 years as Project Art Coordinator in different magazines. In the United States I founded The Fat Brush Art Workshop where I offer a variety of art workshops (in person and online) for children, adults and persons with special needs. Currently I also serve as Art Instructor at two schools in the Seattle Archdiocese, teaching different creative expressions. I collaborate with the Everett Community College and WAGRO foundation where I teach live online art classes to help underprivileged Latino and Hispanic children and families.

I have painted a variety of murals that are displayed throughout my community in Washington State, and decorated walls giving a welcoming look to restaurants, kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms in Mexico and the United States.

Some exhibits where I have participated are: “Aves!” at the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art in Salisbury MD, 50 Graphics for MAPECO “Glances from the childhood” in Uruapan, Michoac6n, Mexico and with the artist Fulgencio Lazo at Seattle Center in 2019. I have created, for more than 12 years, a variety of altars full of colors and traditions for the Day of the Dead Celebration in Mexico and the United States.

I get the inspiration of my works mostly from my cultural background and by trying to raise awareness of the importance of preserving the environment to future generations by reusing and recycling.
