Meet our team


María González, Co-founder and Creative Director

I am passionate about educating people through the arts and empowering them to create a better society.

I am one of’s founders. I have experience organising events, and producing and delivering marketing strategies. I make sure that the events at run smoothly and in a professional way. I also take care of the budget and expenses for every project. But what I love is reaching many people through social media and letting them know about our projects!

My background is very varied: I am a ceramicist and translator with experience in International Relations and Advertising. Such versatility allows me to get involved in Lon-art’s range of activities at many levels: I manage our finances, marketing and PR strategies, and I also deliver some of our workshops.

Veronica Restrepo, art educator and ceramic artist

I am an anthropologist, youth worker, facilitator and ceramicist. As an artist, I experiment with different textures, shapes, techniques and concepts, and am interested in the idea of collectivity and creating solidarity through art. Through my work, I try to reflect on the way we interact with each other and the way we could change reality. Thoughts that always are present when I help design new projects at Lon-art.
