My name is Leticia Suárez del Cerro. I was born in 1972 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Since I was a young girl, my passion was painting, drawing, modeling, any activity
related to Fine Arts. As an extra activity after school hours I took up pottery with
the incentive of mum and dad.
I always knew which was my real vocation: Art. Because of that, as soon as I finished
my secondary school I entered a Fine Arts College ( Santa Ana Institute), in Belgrano
(a neighborhood in Capital Federal). I studied there five years; they were five
extraordinary years when I felt myself deeply immersed into a special world, where I
learnt not only the theoretical knowledge but also to believe in my own dreams, to know
that if you believe in them, some day, they will become true. In 1992 I married Diego,
the love of my life.
I got my degree in 1994; the following year I started teaching art in Virginio Greggo
School at Primary Level; that was an opportunity to get in touch with children and
to realize that art is a fundamental mean of expression for children and it is the
teacher's responsibility to let them express through art. At the same time, I started
modeling souvenirs in cold porcelain. Without even noticing, I entered a different world:
Small figures filled with tenderness and candor modeled in cold porcelain.
At the end of 1996, I started working for Utilísima Satelital specialist's staff .
