Every morning she gets up with a smile. She travels as much as she can, even alone: ​​"Meeting distant and different people makes us understand that the world is a great work of art. This is why I portray people of different cultures, languages ​​and ethnicities. Through their eyes I can imagine the world they come from, ”she says.
