A little bit on me, Coral: I’m a 26 year old digital-minded image retoucher from Argentina with more than seven years’ worth of experience in the trade, during which I have worked in diverse areas, such as fashion, retail and architecture. I hold a current work visa that allows me to live and work in Australia, where I and my husband Santiago have settled in early 2015, and I also possess an Italian Community Passport.

I have retouched my own images since I was 13 (big kudos in MySpace-era social media!). After leaving high school, I started working in Zoom, a pioneering design agency that specialized in image retouching – they were one of the first in South America to do it. I learned the finer tricks of the trade from the senior retouching experts while working there, and the stuff that I learned, I applied during the rest of my career.

If I had to describe myself, I would say I’m a creative and optimistic girl that’s passionate for all things visual: design, film, photography and editing. I have always loved digital and have spent the last few years working in this area, not only editing and retouching visual content, but also creating and managing it appropriately. I’m a firm believer that hard work is the key to success, and I always tackle new challenges with a positive, can-do attitude. Retouching images gives me a very particular sense of satisfaction, which combines my love for visual, my attention to detail and my perfectionist nature.
