The artist was born on 4 May 1975 in San Pedro Totoltepec and suffers from congenital arthropathy (she has only rudimentary arms and no legs). On account of her disability the artist was never able to attend public school, or to get a regular education, and was therefore taught to write and read at home. At an early age she started to paint and draw with her mouth. Initially she taught herself, later she received regular art tuition from Mr. Saúl Ramírez, who introduced her to painting in oils. She also became interested in textile painting. She has featured in various group shows.
