Creates academic performances referring to a type of vital activism, together with her work as a university professor, always rethinking identity: woman and teacher. As a painter, the iconographies she develops are related to her work on the imaginary and dreams, a space in which she researches with daily notebooks of continuous drawing and writing since 1996. Her figurative specialty is portraits, particularly symbolic portraits where she seeks to connect with the imprint of being, with the sensitive creature, beyond the field of appearances. She has a long experience in dream analysis work linking self-knowledge to creative processes and working with very diverse groups in the university, outside it, in Spain and in other countries (France, Brazil, Mexico, Portugal etc.).
