about

Hey! welcome to my site. I´m just a weird girl passionate about drawing. I started developing quirky characters in 2004 when I started working for a Norwegian Magazine called Under Dusken. My illustrations are character driven inspired by people that cross my path, they are usually strangers I see in the street, at work or friends of friends, basically everybody is a potential character in my world.

Born in Guatemala, lived in Trondheim-Norway, in New York City, Mombasa-Kenya, Taipei-Taiwan and now working from Guatemala and the world. I illustrate and paint weird characters with a very humorist side. I have exhibited my work in  Guatemala, El Salvador, Taiwan, England, Mexico, Germany, India, United States and Canada. One of my favorite things to do is street art for which I have painted mural commissions in Guatemala, Canada, Taiwan, Australia, India, Philippines and Switzerland. I have also been selected to participate in Graffiti festivals such as: Meeting of the Styles-Kososvo, Graffiti Queens-Brasil, Mural de la Hermandad-Mexico, Street Art Festival Torrefarrera-Spain, De tu Barrio a mi Barri – Guatemala, Bonito tu Barrio-Guatemala, Peronia Fest- Guatemala, Festival Garifuna-Guatemala, Festival Matices-Guatemala.

I am also part of BC Colectivo where Guatemalan photographer Chinitas Yon and I  create installations, videos and mixed media art exploring  society and the social issues around it.

If you like what I do share and if you want to adopt one of my orphans or commission a painting or mural contact me, I´ll be happy to hear from you.
