I was born in Trinidad Beni, Bolivia.

In art, I consider myself blessed to inherit the talent of my grandmother Tina Alberdi, from whom I received my first teachings. Then I was taking workshops with different national and international artists until I found my own style.

Pictorial art has always been my greatest passion, but for 4 years I have been doing it in a more professional way and as a job that generates resources, social networks are an important tool to disseminate the work I do. I share my pages with the artist Monica Avila, with the name of Zona de Arte A&A.

In November 2018, the art area held an exhibition at the Casa de la Cultura del Beni. In shopping Casco Viejo de Trinidad, for 6 months and in Moxos Hogar also an exhibition of the works.

I belong to the Mondragon Virtual Art Gallery, from Mexico and Artmajeur Art Gallery of France. I was invited to be part of the Casacor 2019 art gallery. In February 2020 I exhibited works at Hotel Camino Real de Santa Cruz, as part of the Market Creativo group of artists, holding different monthly exhibitions.

Currently, my works are exhibited at Ines España Bistro & Bakery in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

In June 2020 I was invited by the Secretary of Culture of Tarija for a 360 virtual exhibition *
In the month of December, I will be presenting three works in The Eye Mural, by Rallwins Gallery.
