She studied the History of Civilization at the University of Lima from 1985 to 1986, delved into the History of Culture and Art History at Nueva Acrópolis, and expanded her practical skills in Painting, Sculpture, and Ceramic Workshops, including High-Temperature Baku Ceramics at Taller Tótem from 1993 to 1994.

She was awarded for "Key Population of the 21st Century" in the United Nations Poster Contest in March 1998, and she secured the Second Prize in Ceramic Specialty from the Banco de Crédito del Perú in September 1998.
