She has been director of an art gallery and teacher of colour theory and abstract painting. The study of creativity, contemporary art and design, always at the service of the human being, is one of her greatest passions.
PhD accredited by ACAP, she leads an interdisciplinary research project that involves the application of fractal geometry and complexity sciences to the world of design, art and architecture. Its aim is to understand and model the laws and algorithms that nature uses to develop its forms: functional, efficient, sustainable and beautiful. This project has many points in common with the improvement of the user experience (UX) in both physical and digital environments, since once the models have been reached, the potential application of these natural algorithms to design and all kinds of contemporary artistic manifestations will facilitate an infinite number of creations that will benefit the well-being of human beings, their personal experience, by reflecting the structures and laws of nature. She has been the driving force behind the first international congress on this subject.
