1990 - 2000
Bernal picked up her artistic rhythm with a series of abstract work, Cumbia. The Cumbia series was inspired by traditional Colombian music and nostalgia for her homeland.
Taking a series of classes in printmaking, she worked to re-learn the difficult techniques required to be successful using this technique.
Bernal began a photographic series based on found and discarded objects that at another time would have been reupholstered or repaired.
