“I was brought up in the Algarve and then lived and travelled around the world. I studied fine Art at the Lorenzo di Medici academy, in Moscow, and in the Ruud Wackers academy in Amsterdam.
I create layered textured canvases, producing depth and intensity of colour. Recently my focus has been on animals and people, having lived in a very quiet environment and recently having changed to the busyness of town life, my work has changed as well. From lonesome land and seascapes to busy eclectic themes, I use various materials to create texture, colour and expression.
I’m greatly influenced by my natural surroundings and my relationship with the land, people and animals.”
