Claudia Sanchez Trentacoste was born on 9 November 1961 in Mendoza, Argentina. At the age of 18, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Due to the continual progression of the disease, she now cannot use her arms or legs. At the end of 2007, she took her first steps towards mouth painting. Since then, VDMFK member and mouth painter Alberto Alvarez has been supporting her in her endeavours to further her artistic talent. The mouth painter has been able to participate in several exhibitions in her region, and took part in occasional workshops.
