I am a visual artist, painter and ceramist. The fundamental subject of my work is woman, her life and fight.
- I born in Portugal, I grow in Mozambique, Africa, where I lived the most part of my life and now I am in Chile. With all these distinct realities I belong of all parts of the planet and my home is the World.
I am feminist.
- I belive sincerely that art, that creativity, is not property of the artists as so... for me to be a artists is to be able to create... art, love, peace, friendship, solidariety... dreams
- For me it is impossible to live without art in all its manifestations and the creativity is one of the most important things for me; is perhaps the only spontaneous demonstration where we are approaching what could be the divinity.
About my artwork
About my artwork
In me there is also the spirit of the navigators and Portuguese adventurers.
Everything begins with the trip imposed starting from the old world, of Portugal to the Discovered ones and to the colonies of Mozambique, in Africa, full with black ethnos and of a splendid coloring.
The distance between my made sleepy origins and that sudden awakening doesn't drain the endless question: Who am I ? experience this fabulous latitude mixing it with other lives, with other pains, with the purity of the color and the plot of mosaics to the one that they call Mestizo.
I built Attitudes starting from my Latitudes.
In these Latitudes I looked for the seeds of wild light that populate my paintings and ceramics.
In these Latitudes I found the mestizos that inhabit my works .
My Latitudes and Attitudes and the mixture of Pain and Color with which I confronted myself during this course of life, they determine my search of the Art inside the Human being, concretely inside the Being's Woman Universe.
What I capture is, therefore, a trip inside of the spirit... to those "doors and windows of the soul", feminine territories of connection with the Life and the Divinity.
In these Latitudes, with my Attitudes and by means of the continuous Art looking for the Being's Woman experiences.
