She will be traveling to Berlin for the exhibit Orlando Berlin/Berlin Orlando in 2011. She is an elected signature member of the Pastel Society of America. Her art is a visual journey, where she captures life and simple pleasures applying rhythmic patterns, natural forms and geometrics in translucent layers. She responds to what catches her eyes and heart, drawing and painting with colors, shapes and lines. Charcoal, pastel, graphite, colored pencil, ink, acrylic or oil paint are utilized on various papers, wood, or canvas. She personifies nature through color and movement evoking moods of transition, strength, joy and serenity.

She began fine art studies at the age of thirteen with her early exhibitions in a seaport town at The Mystic Art Association.  Acknowledged for her luminous landscapes and captivating portraits Pedrero has since become an established award winning artist.
