Born and raised in Veracruz, Mexico, Corro is a mixed media contemporary artist. Her artwork is inspired mainly by the different phases of the moon, nature, fantasy and the colorful side of Mexican folklore. By combining these elements, she has created her own style, using clay and acrylics as the main basis of her artwork. Corro also employs techniques like wood burning into her creations, and makes wearable art such as hand painted shoes, jackets and turns tiny clay sculptures into jewelry.
