Ceramist. Obtained a Bachelor's degree of Art from the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus. Studied ceramics at Casa Candina, the Art Students League, Taller de Bellos Oficios of the University of Puerto Rico at Río Piedras and at Taller Cayey in Cayey, Puerto Rico. She received the Casa Candina Acquisition Prize at the III Biennial of Contemporary Puerto Rican Ceramics (1992). She has exhibited individually in Puerto Rico and in countless number of collective exhibits and biennials in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and at the World Triennial Exhibition of Small Ceramics, Zagreb, Croatia. In her work, she builds a world of ceramic forms that attain pure abstraction through the application of perception, intuition and reasoning. Her work is the result of a strict and minimalist stance taken towards clay.
