About her work, Pacheco says: "Creating art can be an addiction. Some of my best work has come from experiments in provoking reaction. I work to make my images a message. From an early age of 11 to now, 20+ years later, the conviction still flows strong. It's one of the most beautiful obsessions ever. When making art, I lose track of time and space. Just the next stroke of my brush or finishing that last section of sculpture keeps me going. My work always gives praise to color and shape. I am a great fan of soft curves and contrasts; deriving part or all of my pieces from those variables. I like fire, vibrancy and movement even when it's a figure in repose. My path in the arts has had great influences. From an early age I received encouragement by my family and observing the artwork of a variety of Nicaraguan artists to International Masters of old. Artistic influences are many and each one has helped me view my own work in a special light."
