She took a degree in Chemestry at Santiago de Compostela University and studied Painting and Drawing at the School of Arts and Crafts in Ourense. In the last years, she finds an interrelation between chemestry and painting, a disciplinary contamination that allows her to explore new expressive languages. Her artistic work focuses on the research of the possibilities of metals as chromatism supports and textures she extracts using chemical reagents, pigments and painting.
