Originally from Mexico City, via California, and South Carolina, I have been immersed in the fields of art and design for over 15 years. I received a B.F.A. from the Academy of Art University and the University of San Francisco in 1999. More recently, in October of 2017, I earned an M.F.A. in graphic design from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. I am an adjunct faculty member at Colorado Mountain College (CMC) and live in lovely Steamboat Springs, Colorado where I enjoy the mountains with my husband, two boys, and our dog, Diego.
My current body of work explores basic shape, texture, and form through multiplicity, with paper as both a 2-dimensional medium and a 3-dimensional substrate. I am always mindful of the materials I work with, ensuring they are both naturally biodegradable & sustainable, while still of archival quality.
Why Copper Case?
The name is a nod to different aspects of myself and my work. I love the natural transformation of copper, especially as it oxidizes with time and changes from a beautiful copper brown to a vibrant turquoise color. The word 'case' is a nod to my love of typography and the history of printing. In the days of movable type, characters were kept in separate cases (upper & lower) to make typesetting easier. This is my own 'case' where I catalog and keep my life's work, where I reflect on its evolution, and where I share it with others.
Although I am limiting my design practice to creating books, I love teaching design. I am an adjunct faculty member at CMC Steamboat and also offer one-on-one design tutoring. I’m happy to help anyone along their own creative path by serving as both a creative sounding board or, in more practical terms, as a resource for learning design software. Reach out anytime!
