I am a botanist and botanical illustrator. I was born in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. As a young adult, I moved to Switzerland to study biology at the University of Geneva. I specialised in botany (bryology). My artistic and scientific career started with the illustration of my master thesis. Then I worked as an herbarium assistant and scientific collaborator at the Geneva Botanical Gardens. I obtained the Diploma in Botanical Illustration of the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh in August 2018. In parallel I have worked for botanists at the Geneva Botanical Gardens doing illustrations for botanical publications. Currently I live in Cologne, Germany, working on my illustrations.
