Katherine Waleska was born in Venezuela in 1987. When she was 15 years old, she emigrated to Tenerife with her family. Her innate interest in the art world led her to study Fine Arts at the University of La Laguna. After she achieved her degree, she moved to Bilbao to study the Master Research and Creation in art at the University of the Basque Country, that allows her to discover a more experimental pathway within the art world.

Her professional career began in 2012 when she was finalist in the Biennial of Plastic Arts "Atrium", organized by Mapfre Guanarteme Foundation. Therefore, she participated in the "Second International Meeting of students of the Arts" in Saint Remy de Provence (France), where she won the second prize for the work she carried out during the stay.
