I was born in January 1974, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
My father, Juan Carlos Martelli, was a writer and psychoanalyst; my mother, Beatriz Spinosa, was a journalist, painter, and yoga teacher. I grew up in a multidisciplinary home, where I learned the talents of my four elder brothers, too.
My inclination for literature, philosophy, mythology, medieval history, nature, and art, mix and feed my inner world. I have periods through which I only absorb knowledge and sensations, then I externalize them completely transformed.
In the drawings and illustrations, I let escape beings and characters, who appear in gushes. Painting is my most archaic and primitive form of expression, where I don't need to think. With photography, I can express myself in an automatic way. In my writings, I might lead my chaotic imagination to the ordered kingdom of words.
I'm also Health Coach, food journalist, healthy life style teacher, yoga teacher and photo stylist.
Since April 2008 I am living in the U.S., along with my husband, who created this web site, and our son Viggo.
