I am a Colombian designer based in Vienna.
I hold a B.A. in Design with product emphasis from Universidad de los Andes in Colombia and a M.A. in Textile·Art·Design from Kunstuniversität Linz in Austria.
There is much to say about textiles. We use them in our everyday life, but don’t often realize their beauty or detailed structure. My work is full of observation and like a woven textile composed with warp and weft, I create my designs combining those ideas.
The natural world and its connection with the human being often serve me as inspiration. Sometimes due to its beautiful shapes, colors and textures I find in my surroundings, and sometimes because its forces, such as gravity, combined with a blank paper and paint help creating new and sometimes intricated motifs. Whether what I do is an illustration, a pattern or a surface design I use materials such as charcoal, watercolors, markers and sometimes photography that let me express the way I feel about structures. I tend to combine both analogue and digital techniques to reach the aesthetics I desire, trying to capture the language of all this things that speak to me when I see them.
