Born and raised in Portalegre, Portugal in 1980, graduated in Architecture at Lusíada University of Lisbon, however, deeply passionate about Art and the different Artistic Expressions.
Painting appeared very early in my life as a child, my greatest interest and focus was on paper and pencils. I studied Arts and I graduated in Architecture, but I never abandoned the practice of Drawing and Painting.
My work focus on what I call “Layers”. In the understanding of the visible and invisible, but not material, “Layers” of the Living Beings – Humans and Plants -, seeking and discovering what kind of character, nature, emotions and spirituality they carry and transmit. I allow myself to dive into its subtleties, fragilities and densities, as well as its complexity as beings, whether or not endowed with intelligence.
The greatest interest is to get away from the obvious and simply dive into the discovery of these inner worlds camouflaged by the layer of external material.
I am developing my works using Watercolour and Acrylic.

Education:
Arts at São Lourenço School, Portalegre – Portugal, 1995-1998
Architecture at Lusíada University, Lisbon – Portugal, 1998-2003
