Carrillo was a Mexican painter from the Generacíon de la Rupture, which broke with the Mexican School of Painting of the early 20th century. After studying in Paris in the 1950s, her work evolved from the traditional style into doing more abstracts. While she and husband abstract artist Manuel Felguérez struggled to get their work accepted, even selling Mexican handcrafts and folk art to survive, she eventually had her canvas work exhibited in large venues in Mexico City and various cities around the world. Her work was part of the inaugural exhibition of the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City in 1964. After her death in 1974, her work received honors from the Palacio de Bellas Artes and has been exhibited in various venues.
