I’m a passionate and creative soul who uses the powerful mediums of writing and photography to ignite discussions, evoke contemplation, and delve into the very fabric of our society.

W ith every click of my camera and stroke of my pen, I embark on a journey to decipher the narratives that shape us, provoke dialogues and breathe life into the stories that often go untold. Together, let’s traverse the captivating landscapes of culture, identity, and transformation through the lens of creativity.

Poetry book: No guardamos las semillas

Libro de poesía - autora Colombiana - No guardamos las semillas

I wrote ‘We Did Not Keep the Seeds’ as an exploration of the intricate interplay between nature, memory, environmental, and social consciousness in both the Colombian and European landscapes. By setting the narrative against the backdrop of my Colombian roots and the country’s conflict, I aimed to adopt a contemplative stance, offering a unique perspective from a distant vantage point. Through my reflective verses, the book delves into the profound impact of nature’s resilience intertwined with the tapestry of my personal memories, while simultaneously, I engage in introspective musings about the art of writing, adding a layer of meta-awareness to the poetry.
