Bio

I migrated from Venezuela to Santo Domingo and began studying Fashion Design in Chavón, where I explored female experiences to understand mine. Through film, writing, and illustration I navigated my female experience while shaping my body of work. Portraying women has always been my first instinct and designing women's clothing is a response to that. Upon graduating, I won the full tuition Dean’s Scholarship to continue my studies at Parsons. In New York, I discovered my passion for Gender and Latin American Studies which allowed me to confront my cultural baggage: beauty, violence, and community, helping me to make sense of the themes that have formed me and deformed me as well.
