Mexican artist specializing in textile production. She is part of the la flea y artextiles collectives. Besides, she has worked with video and installation.

Her Chamarro project continues a line of research around the relationship of traditional textile and identity of indigenous communities in their country. She understands production in this area as “support, as a language and as a form of communication of a culture marked by the imposition of colonial and postcolonial textile production”

During her stay as a resident in Hangar, she raises the purpose of demonstrating the processes of identity construction from interventions in several sarapes, traditional Mexican clothing with textile techniques currently used in Spain, creating processes and hybrid pieces.
