She was born in Madrid. In 1949 she moved to Collado Villalba, Madrid, where she has lived since then. In 1960 and for a period of seven years she studied at José Gutiérrez Valle's atelier of the Sevillian School. She is, so that, an atelier painter. Later on she continued her painting studies at the Circle of Fine Arts in Madrid where she attended several courses of modern art. In the 80's she visited and studied art in Paris, London, Rome and Venice, going deeply into the techniques already learnt in Madrid. After several exhibitions of lesser importance, in 1987 her works were exhibited at the Sammer Gallery in London and subsequently in Madrid, El Escorial, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Zaragoza, etc. She was also present at national and international Art Fairs in Washington, Chicago, Santander (Spain), Valencia (Spain), Miami, etc.

Some of her works are exhibited at the following museums: Musée Quentovic (Le Touquet, France), National Museum of Fine Arts (La Valletta, Malta), Cathedral Museum (Medina, Malta), Museo Bayo (Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz - Spain), Museo de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando (Madrid, Spain) y Museo de Dibujo "Castillo de Larrés" (Huesca, Spain).


Manos y manzanas.



 

Art critics such as Santiago Amón, Francisco Prados de la Plaza, Francoise Tempra, José Pérez Guerra, Carlos García Osuna, Santos Torroella, Javier Rubio, Mario Antolín, M. L. Camboy, Tomás Paredes, Antonio Morales, Julia Sáenz-Angulo, Rafael Perelló-Paradelo, Agustín Romo, J. Marcaro Pasarius, Héctor López, Ángel Azpeitia, Antonio Lisboa y David Amor, among others have written about her works. This Madrilenian painter is considered by critics one of the best realistic painters at present, being the human body one of her favourite themes especially woman's nude wrapped in paper and cloth which gives her work some magic and mistery.
