Working over a decade as Director of New Markets for artnet Worldwide Corporation in New York, her broad interest in Technology-based art, brought her to establish the pioneering VideoArtWorld organization, which created, set and promoted the international standards, commonly accepted worldwide today, for the appropriate valuing, disseminating, collecting and preserving of intangible artistic creations.
Since then, her research has related diverging issues such as globalization, economy, time, immateriality, ecology, politics, language, technology, innovation as well as cultural, gender and virtual identities, particularly interested in following the latest theories on feminism, socialism, decolonialism, posthumanism, spirituality, bioart & quantum physics.
Her philanthropic endeavor to create alternative realities as cultural curator started at DiVA Fairs New York and Paris, followed by several editions of Barcelona Art Contemporary Festival (BAC!) and VIVA Collections worldwide tour.

Working under the premise that all material or inmaterial imagery created becomes life reality and affects it thereafter, coining trans-disciplinary research lines such as: cultural capitalism, biocentric politics, intangible heritage, co-creation appropriation, imperceivable reality & the organic code. As a media artist she has researched into different mediums, including writing, painting, hand processing color photography, super 8, 3D modeling, 2D animation, videoart, bioart, arduino robotics, outsider drawing, ceramics, metal & wood work.

In 2013 she made the full curriculum of the 3rd Ward Fine Art Academy of Bushwick, Brooklyn, moving to Hawaii afterwards where she started her studies on permaculture, ecology and sustainability. When she became a mother she focused on creativity effects in the development of consciousness, studying the intensive course of the University Pompeu Fabra of Barcelona on Art Therapy, the Cognitive, Sensorial, Motor and Psychomotor Development course offered at Sigma Formación, art education for children as well as various alternative imagery therapies towards a holistic human thrive.
