Her interest in printed images and the search for a style of her own began in painting classes with Juan Antonio Roda: "I realized that I could not paint from natural models [...] although I was a good draughtswoman, I couldn’t paint in those colors, it seemed horrible to me [...] I found a poster of the Surrender of Breda and I copied it with a lot of turpentine, very watered down, and that was a success and that’s how I began." Shortly after graduating in 1963, she was chosen as one of the first young artists to have a solo exhibition at MAMBO, the Bogotá Museum of Modern Art, thanks to a program of the museum, organized by Marta Traba, dedicated to showing the work of new talent.
