Always passioned by the creation and research of new shapes and textures, I have completed a BA in Visual Arts in Argentina where I started to work with silkscreen on paper and fabric. In 2003, I moved to Montreal and I chose to take the Textile Printing course (at the CEGEP du Vieux Montréal) to learn a metier to be able to work in a field that I could apply my artistic background. In 2008, after finishing my diplome, I received a subvention of the Quebec Office Wallonie-Bruxelles for the Youth to participate in a sensibilisation project focus in the entrepreneurship values oriented to the new generation of artisans in the francophone Belgium. Between October 2012 and Fevruary 2013, I took the course of Winner Strategies of Marketing focus in ethical fashion and sustainable projects at FemInternational. This course, helped me to start to develop my business plan and learn about the problematic caused by the “fast food” culture. In May 2013, I received a subvention of the LOJIQ ((Les Offices Jeunesse Internationaux du Québec) to go in the first exploratory and sustainable sourcing mission in Bolivia, La Paz. In this occasion I participated in the FITEX (Commercial Textile Trade Show at the La Paz ville). I've done small contracts of silkscreen printing and silk painting for local small entrepreneurs from Montréal and United States. I also did some small courses of silkscreen at the CEGEP Marie-Victorin and Dawson College.
