Medium: Abstract Impressionism, mostly Acrylic on canvas, but I often use a huge variety of media.
“I was born in Lisbon, in 1979. I graduated in Fine Arts at the Art and Design University of Caldas da Rainha. I currently teach Fine Arts classes and workshops. In 2014 I moved to the Algarve, Lagoa, where I have further explored my own art and participated in numerous Artistic Projects.
Recently I was invited to join the Contemporary Art Curator Magazine, the “WeContemporary” catalogue of MUSA International Art Space, and the “100 Artists of the Future” art book to be published in 2019 by Contemporary Art Curator and I will be exhibiting at the ARTIFACT Gallery in Manhattan in 2021.
I have held several exhibitions of drawings and paintings, both collective and individual, for example: Parallax Art Fair in Kensington, The Manuela Vale Gallery in Lagoa, The João Bailote Gallery in Albufeira, Casa de Cultura Jaime Lobo e Silva in Ericeira, Centro de Artes e Ofícios in São Brás de Alportel, The Capela de Santo António Art Gallery in Ferreira do Alentejo, Municipal Library of Silves, Casa dos Condes de Alcoutim, Centro Cultural de Vila do Bispo, The Arte Algarve Gallery, The Pintor Samora Barros Art Gallery in Albufeira, Casa André Pilarte in Tavira, Centro de Exposições in Odivelas, Palácio Ribamar in Algés, Casa Mantero Municipal Gallery in Sintra, Potthoff Gallery in Lisbon, Tons da Baía Gallery in Cascais, Angels Bar in Carcavelos, Café e Companhia Bar in S. Tome and the Principe, Com’ Arte Cafe in Coimbra; amongst others.
I cannot explain myself, the only thing I can say about me is that I’m not only one thing; I’m everything, I’m feelings … and emotions!
My work is an expression of that. It’s an outburst of what it is to create; a deep pain, a deep plage; As if we were achieving a unique perfection … conquering a virgin world; and the desperation to survive in this monetary society!
Loose and quick brushstrokes do not allow fear to invade my clean and “perfect” images. THE GOAL IS TO CAPTURE EMOTION RATHER THAN REASON.
I also run art classes:
“Atelier At Your Home”- I go to the client’s house and we develop work in painting and drawing, helping to find each person’s own creative language.
“Atelier to children and adults”- In the Escola de Artes, Mestre Fernando Rodrigues in Lagoa.
