As a young adult, Celia moved to New York from her native country of Argentina. Her previous studies and degree were in teaching and journalism but since childhood she dabbled in art and crafts. During the early years, besides raising a family, she studied ceramics and sculpture and developed her own style. During that time Celia participated in several group showings and received several awards. She also taught her self the basics of early microprocessors and computers.
After moving to Washington D.C., Celia learned computer programming and wrote several programs, including "The Banner Machine" - which printed large-sized banners using a dot matrix printer.
Celia's move to Atlanta coincided with the advance in digital photography which opened a whole new field and gave her the capability of combining her artistic aspirations and her fascination with computers.
