Artist's Statement:

I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, surrounded by Portuguese relatives. After married, we moved to Australia and lived there for 3 years, just before we landed in Texas in 2011, a place that our two sons call home.​

I am a self-taught figurative watercolorist who likes to develop paintings that speak to the public. My background, of caring for children in foster care, has made me into a more sensitive person. This tendency impacts what I expect from my paintings and their emotional narrative. My art is innocent, romantic, and pure. They convey a feeling of freedom and hope. Just like fairy tales, my paintings tend to speak to the public, tell stories, and portray an emotional narrative, revealing feelings and thoughts.

Winning the Purchase Award has such enormous significance for me, it’s every artist’s dream to be in a museum and my work, Lee’s Ferry Landing, will be at the Tucson Desert Art Museum for as long as I live. I’m so thankful to the American Women Artists for that opportunity.”
