Picó was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She received her BBA in Painting from Escuela de Artes Plásticas. Picó states, "Colors and textures are very significant in my work to express personal emotions. I am very sensitive to surfaces and enjoy the manipulation of materials. If some calligraphy appears, it is not a technical instrument, but a pure form of expression. I like to work away from traditional ways, trusting only my instinctŠthat way, I can reach the basic, primary, simple things in life."
