I am a portuguese artist, born in Lisbon in 1983.
My work is entirely hand painted in watercolours and black indian ink.

Since I was a little girl, my days were spent among books and crayons spread at grandma's house. Nothing could equal the joy I experienced through exercising my hand and brain skills.Infant school teachers would continuosly complain about me focusing exclusively on painting and drawing activities, and not playing around with the other kids too often.

I grew up passionate about the arts and I became curious about everything that surrounded me. The world and it's history dazzled me. I had found a way to feed my soul, through knowledge and research. Through painting I found my path... the path to the self I kept searching for since I was a kid.
