I moved to the Algarve some twenty years ago when my son was just three months old. Leaving my career in the music and television industry to start a new chapter in a country I fell in love while on holiday. I have always seen life in colour and having done some research decided to turn what had been my hobby into a business and so Luzdecor Interiors was born in Praia da Luz. Following my passion for colour and design I traded successfully for more than fifteen years.

Last year I decided to hang up my tape measure and began looking for a new chapter. Invited to a seascape workshop by my good friend and artist Caroline Wood I found the first page of that chapter. These are my first paintings and mostly done during the state of emergency. I work outside on my terrace and had a lot of interest in my work from local exercisers during that time with a wave and a smile. As they didn’t know my name I became ‘ the lady that paints’.

All my pictures inspired by my beautiful village of Praia da Luz
