I am an Ecologist, Field Naturalist, Wildlife Conservation Photographer and Wildlife Artist
I was born in Buenos Aires in 1977. Since I was a child I have been enthralled by nature. At a very young age I first evidenced a gift for drawing and sports, while drawing and painting was developed spontaneously through self-study. Sports I undertook mainly during my childhood and adolescence, training for gymnastics and synchronized swimming.
Being a sports woman since age 6, I have shaped my personality which is based on discipline, effort and permanent spirit of improvement.
After High School years, led by my innate passion, I decided to undertake Ecology and Environmental Studies followed by the career of Field Naturalist. Meanwhile, I also rediscovered music (which I had also studied in my childhood) now focusing on the guitar. Simultaneously, I resumed the practice of sports, becoming a dancer and acrobat.
I discovered Photography, which later became a core part of my life and an essential tool to transmit my knowledge and values of the natural world
While pursuing the career of Naturalist, I discovered Photography, which later became a core part of my life and an essential tool to transmit my knowledge and values of the natural world. I particularly specialized in macro photography and my most outstanding portraits are on arthropods and amphibians.
Many years now devoting myself to Conservation Projects, I worked for more than eleven years at the Argentine Museum of Natural Sciences ‘Bernardino Rivadavia’. Then I´ve worked at Darwinion Botanical Institute. I am teaching photography lessons and practicing sports as a hobby. A reading fan, I am also impassioned with biological evolution and Neurosciences.
In September 2017 I published my first book “The world of the small: an approach to the universe of arthropods from an artistic, visual and evolutionary perspective”
In January 2021, I moved to Costa Rica to pursue work in Conservation Biology and Conservation Visual Storytelling.
I am offering Private Mentorships and Macro Workshops in Costa Rica.
