She worked in the Março Group and collaborated with the Non-Group in the seventies.

In 1981, she, along with Emma Cecilia García and Gilda Castillo, curated the first exhibition of contemporary Mexican women artists who traveled to the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in West Berlin. She organized several artist book shows for the United States and Brazil. In the eighties, she published visual poems in different specialized magazines.
