Born and raised in Merida, Venezuela, cultural, diverse and University City among the highest mountains of the Andes, gave Mildred an appreciation for the arts from an early age. Mildred discovered her passion for the stone under the wise eye and guidance of the late Venezuelan artist and master sculptor Valentin Malaver.
Natural stone is my medium. Since her beginnings I have been experimenting with many different sculpting techniques: classical and industrial. Using natural stone as my main medium together with various materials to achieve the desired effect including steel and wires to balance unique movement, energy, texture, and music in her work.
Create organic and abstract forms through curves, shapes, shadows, textures, and above all, the presence of the feminine; their sensuality and sexuality, their brittleness and hardness at the same time. The searching to connect the hardness of the stone with its inner beauty and femininity moves my work.
