Portugal born artist
earned in 2019 the IN3 Art Worldwide International Master Artist® designation.
Why did you decide to pursue a career in the Visual Arts?
I was influenced by great Masters, after I visited many museums in Europe.
I also loved glass, that manufactured at my relative's factory.
Loved glass manufactured on my relatives factory.
That's when I started to thinks about painting, and switched to painting on canvas, until the present days.
When did you make that important decision?
It was then that I moved to glass from painting on canvas.Which allowed me to develop my creations.
From then on I developed other techniques such as oil, acrylic, watercolor, crafts,
decorative art, fusion glass, ceramics,
Now days I paint mostly acrylic on canvas.
I studied some artist's paintings and fell in love with Vincent Van Gogh, Caravaggio, and the Impressionists.
In Portugal I was fascinated by folklore. Later in life I loved Mode. Today I like to create my own colored faces.
I've been a visual artist for 30 years.
I grew up in Brazil, with a childhood influenced by Nature. My inclinations were towards the Arts and I began by studying piano and poetry when I was eight years old.
I prefer to paint faces because it means I give life to the figure.
Also, I like to paint religious thèmes, a way of
pray and to approach to God.
I paint in my own atelier; that's all.
