In school she discovered theater and traditional folk dancing. When she moved to the US she studied theater with artist and director

She also studied fashion design at the Academy of Design & Technology. She graduated from the French Pastry School. And she is the founder of Reciclarte Studio.
Her art is inspired by Mother nature and its million wounds caused by the greed of humans. She incorporates as many recycled materials in her art pieces which she calls "diamonds in the rough". She is a multidisciplinary artist: jewelry, handcrafts, paintings, prints, murals, sculpture, fashion design, pastries, dance, acting, bread making, just to name a few. For Leticia Rodarte, art is more than just making pretty things, it's as she puts it "my oxygen".
