Her father was a fashion and theater photographer (Jorge Damonte), and her mother was a contemporary dancer (Marcia Moretto), they were both from Argentina.

Heavy manipulations through digital editing and movement are elements found in all her work. She loves showing the unique and timeless beauty of women through the creation of images. Her work can be described as surreal or ethereal .
