Since 1994 she has held over thirty-five solo exhibitions at private galleries in Spain and the Netherlands as well as in public institutions in Italy, France, Germany and Spain …. and has collaborated in group exhibitions in Switzerland, Mexico, Berlin, Miami, Brazil, and New York.

Last year she was awarded the Premio del Público de las Artes Plásticas del Canal Sur (The Fine Arts Prize of Spain’s Canal Sur television station). And in 2010, she was the winner Premio de Artes Plásticas (the Fine Arts Award) of the government Spain’s autonomous region of Cantabria.
