I was born and raised in a rural area of Cordoba, Argentina. As I immigrated to Providence Rhode Island with my husband in 1971 I became a mother and created a family. As a child growing up in rural South America, I found an early classroom in the forms and shapes of nature around me. Later, as an adolescent my earlier observations and musings were given a voice and mode of expression through my study of film and photography at the University of Cordoba Art school. After a pause that included raising two children, my formal art education was completed at Rhode Island College in 1984. After graduating, I actively worked in various mediums, honing my drawing skills and working in my own black and white photo lab. Through continuing education courses at the Rhode Island School of Design I was introduced to paper making and paper arts. The organic forms and processes involved quickly hearkened back to recollections I had from early childhood that invigorated my work and expression in a new direction. I have since gone on to make paper arts my primary medium and have been accepted in traveling exhibitions at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton Mass, participating in various local galleries both locally and in my native Argentina where I maintain active collaborations in workshops led by Architect and master educator Silvia Turbiner.
