About Me


"Andábamos sin buscarnos pero sabiendo que andábamos para encontrarnos" — Julio Cortázar


Colombian girl who lives in France. A lovely person who believes in the art of "masturbate our brain to get some new ideas!"... at least is my philosophy.
I love to draw, to write, to paint, to dance, to read, to ride my orange bike, to run....

Nowadays I'm really interest about Art Therapy! I'd like to work with people who fights against eating disorders, women and men.
It'll lovely to help them and try to figure out what's happening in their minds while the world doesn't have the same point of view about their bodies.


We offer ourselves in a concise space, where we look by the closeness of our acts a reinvention of gesture and signs! People comes and goes. Experiences feed your mind, love moves your feet, music makes you smile, you only life once!

------- :)

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people thinking. Don't let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. Steve Jobs. Stanford commencement speech, June 2005
