Desde hace ya algunos años, las guacamayas amarillas y azules (ara ararauna) surcan a diario los cielos de Caracas alegrándonos el alma con su ruidoso vuelo. Así los veo pasar por mi terraza a diario. Se detienen en algunas casas, ventanas y terrazas donde son invitadas a comer.
For quite a few years now, the noisy blue and yellow macaws (ara ararauna) fly daily over Caracas' skies bringing immense joy and solace to us. The pass by my terrace at least twice a day. They stop at some houses, building windows and terraces when invited for a meal.

After a lifetime in Venezuela, I moved to native Germany. It is not easy to start anew overseas, yet it offers marvelous opportunities! What is everyday monotony to most, is interesting new to me. I sketch everywhere, often on trains. There are so many new things to record in my sketchbooks. I have so many ideas, I fear time is not enough to materialize them all. I want to depict the enormous diversity of people around me in Europe.
Currently I am offering art workshops at Kunstpark in Herne .
My work has been presented in dozens of art exhibitions and competitions in Venezuela earning several awards. It was selected for display at several International Watercolor Biennials in Mexico; the First Andean Watercolor exhibition in Cuenca, Ecuador; AQUARELA INTERNACIONAL - SÃO PAULO / BRASIL 2008 biennal, II International Watercolor Biennal 2011 in Spain, a special watercolor exhibition in Russia commemorating St. Peterburg´s tricentennial, as well as in other venues in Italy, Chile, Guatemala and Panama.
