And in the visual arts, she started painting when she was living in Guanajuato, and it was a family friend who taught her to paint her first oil painting at the age of 14 years old. As she grew up in Guanajuato, it is precisely the colorful handicrafts of this state that inspire her and is what can be seen reflected in her paintings.
Since then, she was just painting for herself, until she knew about the 35 x 35 open call opportunity organized by The Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles, through its Center for Culture and Cinematic Arts (CCCM) that she decided to send her work for consideration and her artwork “Alebrije Inclusivo” got selected to be displayed at the 35x35 Bicentennial exhibition by Marietta Bernstorff, the Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oaxaca, México. Currently she is more focused on music, but on her days, she always finds a moment to paint.
