Her work developed in New York City, where she moved after finishing Fine Art at the UPV (University of the Basque Country), going on to study Art and Education at Columbia University, NYC. Her work as an artist combines, meets, mixes with and infects that of art and education within the museum framework. She worked in different education departments: MoMA, Bronx Museum, El Museo del Barrio and Guggenheim Museum NY.

Since 2001 curator of education and programs for the publics at Artium Basque Center Museum of Contemporary Art.

Her work in the education field and applying critical pedagogy in museum surroundings, with a wide variety of collectives —culturally, ethnically, politically, economically, and in terms of age and gender— that reflect the multiplicity of the contemporary world, enables her to explore how we regard “objects” and the way they regard us, depending on where they are and who might be looking at them. This context idea leads her to check out the possibility of showing her Science is fictionproject in a space that is not necessarily devoted to contemporary art, or to art either, but to science. Science is fiction is presented as an experiment and an experience where an artist’s project is contextualized in the San Sebastian Aquarium space.

She has exhibited in many museums, art centres and galleries, including Sala Rekalde (Bilbao), Casa de America (Madrid), Antonio Barnola Gallery, Barcelona, Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College (NY), Parker’s Box, Art in General and The Bronx Museum for the Arts (New York), Centro Cultural São Paulo (Brazil) and Museu de Arte Contemporânea do Ceará (Fortaleza, Brazil).
