I am absolutely ecstatic to be part of Solita Mishaan collection. As a Colombian artist that lives and works in Chicago, it is an honor to be recognized by by her. Solita Mishaan saw my embroidery work during ArtBo 2014. She visited the exhibition El cambio de todo lo que permanence, curated by Jaime Cerón, for the Artecámara division in ArtBO 2014 in Bogota, Colombia.
