My name is Mariana Fossatti. I am a visual artist from Montevideo, Uruguay, a little country of South America. I’ve been working in collage as a way of artistic expression for some years. I use paper, cardboard, magazine clippings, vintage ephemera and all kind of things. Some of my works are figurative and some others abstract. You will see that many times my style is close to pop art.

My nickname, Señorita Leona (Miss Lioness), is inspired in a short story by Horacio Quiroga, about a little lioness that grows in the city. She was educated by humans and become a refined singer. One day, in the middle of a concert, without knowing why, she starts roaring like a beast. All the people who loved her up to that day, begin afraid of her. Then, she must return to the jungle to live like a wild animal.
