I am a professional painter, teacher and psychotherapist living and working in USA since 1981. I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. My childhood was filled with the language of the dreams, myths, rituals and symbols identified as manifestations of our own creative spiritual energy. Dreams were a common topic of conversation during our family meals specially from my father who used to love to share his dreams with us. I was fascinated by his rich imagination which in turn inspired mine
My childhood background has set the stage for what my artwork is today.
In my work as a psychotherapist, I am attuned with the rhythms of human existence and its individual and collective unconscious; exploration of dream imagery is use as a way to learn about oneself and to heal.
This unfolding trust in the unknown shapes my creative process, which is becoming increasingly intuitive, spiritual and nonlinear, and it is strengthening the concept of transcendence through art.
I hold a M.Ed. (1978) from my native country, a master in art therapy (1988) from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a PhD (2009) from the Institute for Clinical Social Work. My research focuses on the contributions of art-making to traditional verbal psychotherapy treatment of adults.
