She works along two lines: self-referential and documentary, with a focus on the human fragility in interpersonal relationships and collective structures (family and vulnerable groups) and her projects’ topics include violence, sexual abuse and incest.
With a background in political science, she studied at the Manuel Álvarez Bravo Photographic Center and Centro de la Imagen in México, completing a Master’s degree in Critic of Contemporary Art and Production of Visual Arts.
She is a tutor for the Clinics for Specialization in Contemporary Art in Oaxaca and was a tutor in the Program to Encourage Artistic Creation and Development (an award for artists granted by The Council of Arts of México). Part of her creative process involves the practice of community pedagogy avoiding the vertical structure of power.
