How many olives in your martini?

Wrapping up a trip that was entirely too quick, I reflect on the opportunity to get invited to present my work at Cristina Grajales Gallery in New York.

Galerie Magazine did a phenomenal job recapping must see art exhibitions, you can read the full review and description on their page.

My Dirty Martini Ritual

I have to admit that Martinis became my comfort blanket as I prepared to showcase my work this February after a year-long journey leading up to the grand unveiling. Don’t be embarrassed to ask for those extra olives – they might just be the touch of comfort you need.

From Miami to Milan to New York: A Nervewracking Transition

Having navigated Miami Art Basel (twice!) and the high-fashion runways of Milan Fashion week, stepping onto the New York stage was both exhilarating and nerve-wracking. It marked a year of relentless research, meticulous design, and unwavering preparation. The weight of presenting a collection worthy of Cristina Grajales Gallery and its esteemed guests fueled my determination to exceed expectations.

A Symphony of Surprises: Tapping into the New York Art Scene

I wanted the eyes that were going to see and the hands that were going to touch to be truly surprised by the product. In a world filled with spectacular and fantastic art, especially in the vibrant city of New York, I aimed to harmonize my designs with the unique touch of Cristina and Pedro Barrail.

Proud and Humbled: A Paraguayan Woman’s Milestone

As a Paraguayan woman, this collection represents a monumental milestone in my career as a designer and entrepreneur. I take pride in my roots, and it’s a humbling experience to have my work showcased in such a prestigious gallery. It’s not just about the designs; it’s about breaking barriers and proving that creativity knows no bounds.

Embracing the Uncomfortable: From Creative Soul to Confident Entrepreneur

I am not an extrovert by nature; I am a creative soul and I prefer to keep to myself. However, the relentless support from my CEO and PR specialists forced me out of my comfort zone. They pushed me to believe in myself and my vision, proving that growth often comes from embracing the uncomfortable.

In the end, it all came together seamlessly. My collection at Cristina Grajales Gallery is not just a representation of my creative prowess but a testament to the journey of a Paraguayan woman breaking barriers in the world of art and design.

Let me leave you with a question: How many olives do you add to your dirty martini? Cheers to art, design, and the courage to step outside our comfort zones!
