I am a Semi-professional artist, originally from Lisbon, I started painting oil on canvas in 1996 as a self-taught artist. Living in London since 2008, traveling to a few different places around the world, coupled with my memories from Portugal, makes my inspiration to paint mountains, lakes, seas, sky, beaches, moors, also I love deserts, anything in nature.
I am very passionate about nature, the light, colours, texture, and movement. My dream is to travel around the world and paint every vibrating composition of nature. I believe in energy, healing, and spiritual connection, so my paintings are transmissions of my passion and energy. I can only paint in a positive emotion, offering tranquillity, relaxation, peace, and healing, or more energetic and vibrating art.
I like to work mostly in an Impressionist or Abstract Style using mainly Oil on Canvas or Watercolours. I use brushes or palette knife in a technique of strokes, wet on wet, multiple layers, soft or fast movements, etc. depends the effect I want to create on painting and my emotion but always full of passion.
I attended on Arts Academy however I love been self-taught, I am to irreverent to follow rules and academics concepts, I like to learn, practice and develop my work on my proper fast time, I love the creative challenges and get the results of my goals.
I live in Sutton area, Surrey where I have my studio and a gallery which I am available to show my artwork by appointment.
