Her life in Boston exposed her to many of different cultures and gave birth to a creative process that expanded from music to a 35mm camera and into the visual arts.

,She is the band leader and vocalist of this project.
Since 2014, Photography by paloma expanded into PalomARTStore showcasing Mexican inspired Artisanal artwork, multimedia art and jewelry.

In 2017, Paloma started using tuning forks and the Acutonics teachings in her music therapy practice. The response and teachings when working with these children, helped her intergrate what she was capturing in a huge realization and a call to spirit through the power of sound. This completely changed the direction of her career into the practice of sound vibrational healing and energy techniques creating Ohm Sessions. Paloma travels doing this work back and forth between Mexico and Miami.
Paloma currently offers online programs of meditation with sound, children's art, music and mindfulness classes through Outschool and private clients.
