About

I was born in Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas, Mexico and lived in almost all of the states of Mexico during my childhood. That unique experience help me develop my deep love for art. Traveling across Mexico and seeing all the various types of art created by different artisans was amazing.
Mostly for me the traditional jewelry wore by the native Indians in South Mexico, Chiapas and Oaxaca, are my favorites.
My art work is a one-of-a-kind jewelry that transmits a feeling and a story, mostly influenced by my Mexican heritage. It is simple, but at the same time is full of delicate details that enhance the beauty and uniqueness of the piece.

I’m very influenced by all sources of folk art that express a cultural heritage giving me the opportunity to add “soul” to my work.

I got my certification with Rio Grande as an Artisan in precious metal clay in 2006 and I am a member of the PMC Guild and the PMC guild chapter from San Antonio "MCASA."

My work has been featured in the “2008 PMC Guild Annual II , Exceptional work in Precious Metal Clay” book, in the book from Barbara Becker Simon, “Metal Clay Beads,” and in this year's "2009 PMC Guild Annual III."

I moved to San Antonio, Texas from New Jersey in 2003 with my family. My passion and appreciation for art motivated me to open my retail
store "Pueblo Folk Art" in San Antonio, Texas.

The majority of my time besides my jewelry is devoted to my two beautiful kids, Christian (11) and Veronica (7), and my awesome husband Jorge who supports my art a lot and has been the best cheerleader of my work.
I am blessed to have the family I have and very fortunate after all we went through with our beautiful daughter that was born three months early with only 1 Lb 11 oz. She is our miracle baby and the best teacher we all have that perseverance paid off very good at the end.
Both my kids are my inspiration to always move forward and enjoy life at its best.
