She is currently showing her work in galleries in Mexico City, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. Her work explores the double-standard conception of femininity in contemporary society; the way beauty canons and cultural doctrines all work together to chisel women into certain behavioral, psychological, physical, and emotional expectations. Through the countenance of the portrayed entity (who is both an individual and the universal female person) and the representation of the so-called female fragility she brings forward the real strength and intrinsic, raw beauty that lies within all women. “There is a continuous struggle inside my paintings; a battle between beauty and
ugliness, tenderness and strength, passiveness and vigor. There should be no norms to determine the meaning of being a woman (or a man, for that matter). I celebrate the intrinsic value and beauty of humanity”.
