The nineteen seventies were special for the artist because she settled in Panama, where she presented her first individual exhibition. In 1972, she began teaching engraving courses at the University of Panama, which allowed her to open a graphics workshop at the school and implement the use of the burin and the engraving press. During this time and while teaching, she participated in several exhibition projects such as the II Biennial of Graphic Arts in Cali in 1973. In 1976 she exhibited at Casa de la Cultura in Quito. From 1977 to 1978, she resided in Ecuador.
