Since 2010 I have been designing and making pieces using recycled silver and gold from responsible artisanal and small-scale mining organizations and ethically sourced stones. My designs are sculpted and textured by hand, inspired by the materials' natural beauty.
As a teenager, I moved to Cartagena, a colonial city in the Southwest Caribbean in my native Colombia. Every morning, I traveled to the nearby islands to teach scuba diving. From the Caribbean, I moved to Africa, then the Middle East, and the South Pacific, always by the sea, my constant inspiration. In 2009, I settled in Washington, DC, and joined the Corcoran School of Arts and Design, where I studied and worked until 2015. My studio is in the DC metropolitan area.
