My art

My interest in art has been present since I was a child: In the first and second grade of school, I went to a conservatory of fine arts where reading music was not only mandatory, but choosing different types of art was an option for all afternoon activities from 1-4pm. Coming from families of photographers, painters, filmmakers and musicians, it was almost impossible that the need to express myself through art did not run through my veins. It is worth mentioning that my Aunt Isabel was always the creator of my childhood dresses. I always had the urge to learn how to sew, embroider or knit like her, but I never did. I left it in my To Do List that sooner or later I was going to have to do.
I studied Fine Arts for five years at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague where I specialized in painting, however, working with collages was always my greatest interest. I did several exhibitions, but I never devoted myself to art in a professional way.

It wasn't until the summer of 2018 that I got behind a sewing machine for the first time and discovered my passion and affinity for textiles. I never thought I could dedicate entire days to one thing until I started sewing and creating with fabrics. Since then, I have been following professional tailoring courses and in that exploration, little by little I began to discover that my passion was more towards the manipulation and decoration of fabrics. And in that exploration I have come to learn techniques of embroidery, tapestry, weft, punch needle, and little by little, it has lead me to want to seek a more formal education in the field. So, in September of 2020, I started a bachelor's degree in textile art that focuses on the art of weaving.

My plan is to keep exploring and learning more techniques of this visual art path while continuing to write and work with people in group sessions.
