Experimentation in many different mediums has been a part of my life from a young age. As a child I painted, built wooden toys, made sculptures from plasticine, and took dance and music lessons.

This early experience with art was very influential, and as a young adult I pursued a formal education in painting and photography from the National Center for the Arts in Mexico City.

Moving slowly from representational imagery to abstract painting and collage, I integrated my visual findings into my photography, scratching and bending the negatives to create an aged and textured appearance.


“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious – the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.”

Albert Einstein

While in art school in Mexico City I took video and multimedia courses, and in 1998 I was granted a scholarship to attend the multicultural program at the Gulf Islands Film and Television School in British Columbia.

This week-long course was a pivotal point in my career, for it inspired me to enrol in the Film Production program at Concordia University in Montreal.

I produced several films and videos, experimenting with the materiality of each medium. I integrated my previous findings in photography, abstract painting and collage into my filmmaking practice, scratching, painting, tinting, bending, piercing, hand-processing and solarising the film medium until I found the visual aesthetic I intended for each piece. One more element was added to my artistic practice: sound. I found the creation of soundtracks for my films to be a most interesting experience.


Since earning my BFA in 2003 I have produced film and video works that have won awards in national and international festivals. I have also created sound pieces, experimenting with every step of the production process in order to parallel my film and video work. Recently I have started to investigate the visual and artistic possibilities of video-performance and video-installation works.


My current practice is again leaning towards the representational, and it includes painting, film, video, photography, collage, ceramic and video installation.
