Rocks, sticks, objects picked up at the beach and that continue to rest while the moment to create starts. For this moment is imperative to be surrounded by peace, by silence, letting the inspiration fill her soul. She can only find such an environment at her ateliers in her home, even though she has tried multiple times to open her work space outside of her house. Her creative process, as described by herself, depends completely on her emotional state, as she doesn't work with pre-formatted guides or templates, she creates as she works. She starts creating from scratch, and then she visits her "dumpster" of items, where she starts finding what she wants to use, which helps her creativity because it transports her to the moment the item was collected, and she makes such inspiration a very important part of her work. In other occasions is the object that is self-generated, as the idea is the one that drives the art piece. In both cases there is not much order or planning, but instead a lot of improvisation and hard work.



The most interesting aspect of textile art is the fact that there are no limits in terms of techniques or materials. In her atelier you will be able to find all source of metals, stones, plastics, wool, and even non-conventional objects that include soda cans all the way to recycled credit cards. She works as her inspirations dictates, and she lets the moment tell her what to do, for such a reason she must have as many elements as possible, conventional and non conventional .



Nevertheless, in her conversation exists a process that results in a technique that allows the modular elaboration required to generate art work of all dimensions, as it can be expanded and contracted. The process allows transportation and adaptation with the spaces she needs or she has to work with. The fact that her exhibitions are usually far away from her work space, requires that she comes up with systems that make transportation and set-up much easier. This factors in one way or another also affect the design and the execution of each work.



Possibly she requires looms that are smaller in size and work areas that are smaller than required for the elaboration of any piece of her art or to develop different results, but valuing the importance of the work space is extremely important when it comes to defining the right environment and the right tools and space to produce the next "master piece" At any given time any art piece my require that the volumetric conceptualization is improved since any given art work can require to be re-modeled or re-modified taking into account that can be hanged, framed or even installed over a base. All of this possibilities requires infinite horizons when it comes to exploring creativity. This new tendencies allows more creative freedom and adaptation to almost any area where the art work will be temporarily exhibited or where buyers want to permanently located them.
