Since I was a small child, I enjoyed making all kinds of handcrafts. As I grew up, I started taking classes: Papier Mache, Cold Porcelain, Sewing, Jewelry and many other handcraft activities. My passion for handcrafts became my way of making a living.
In 1993, I became the owner of a store where we used to sell all kinds of baking and cake decorating supplies. As the demand for cake decorating and other courses increased I started to create other artistic and edible crafts. This is when I created the 3D Gelatin Desserts technique, which is one of the crafts I like the most. This inspired me to create a new company, GELART FLORAL, which is exclusively dedicated to the 3D Gelatin art. For more than fifteen years. I have practiced and developed this innovative technique for 3-D floral gelatin desserts. My current catalogue includes more than seventy different flowers and other designs and figures. I have also designed and produced the tools necessary to improve the process of creating 3D gelatins.
I teach many other courses such as candy (chocolate), artistic and real chocolate, Wilton Method Cake Decorating, Sugarpaste/Fondant, Gum Paste, Sugar Flowers, Figure Modelling, Gingerbread Cookies and Houses, 3D Artistic Gelatin Desserts, Decorated Artistic cookies, etc.
I currently live in Mexico City. However, I have taught hundreds of customized courses on different techniques creating artistic gelatin desserts, not only in Mexico but also internationally in countries such as USA, UK, Peru and some other countries of South America. Many people have traveled to Mexico City to take my classes. In October 2012 I will be teaching in Malaysia.
I have appeared in some of the most important TV shows in Mexico and US, Culinary Fairs, Expositions and Gastronomic Festivals in Mexico and in monthly national bakery and gelatin desserts specialized publications as well as some international magazines and books.
Invited by Kerry Vincent, I have demonstrated at the Oklahoma Sugar Art Show (2003), and I also participated in the Wedding Contest in 2006 winning Silver. I have also demonstrated and given hands-on classes at ICES 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011. I won the First Place in the National Gelatins Contest in Mexico City, and fifth place in the Steampunk cake contest in the Cake Central website.
Creating 3D Gelatin Desserts has provided me with the opportunity to travel, meet new people and be as creative and expressive as possible. I love to create new designs in different mediums such as Gelatin, Fondant and Gumpaste.
The creation of these gelatins allows for flavor to be captured into art.
