She was born in Mexico City in 1956 in a family that grew a lot.

She remembers the smell of the hands of the teacher who taught her how to read and write.

She read a lot of books under the blankets and with a lantern, in order not to wake up her sisters.

Another teacher sat her on the waste-basket after not raising her hand before talking.

She was a shy girl twelve years. Then she discovered humor.

At age seventeen she lost her mother, started her musical studies and read a lot of other books.

She finished her professional harp and musical studies in the National Conservatory of Mexico City and continued them in Spain and the USA.

She has played solo, in chamber groups and with many orchestras in different countries.

She has recorded five compact discs: ZARPA AL AZAR (Urtext), GAUGUIN (Urtext), ALMÍBAR (Urtext), CARNAVAL (Urtext) and RAMAS (Quindecim).

With Janet Paulus she formed SONDOS, DÚO DE ARPAS, a harp duet.

She joined Francisco Hinojosa´s writing workshop “Héroes de Juchipilina”, where she learned how to write something else than shopping lists and letters.

She plays with Orquesta Filarmónica de la UNAM, teaches at the National Conservatory of Mexico. She reads before and after concerts and writes while soaking beans or when everyone else is sleeping.

She has four daugthers born in three births: a long one, a short one and a double one.
