I was born in Lisbon in March 21, 1981
Early on I discovered the art in my life!
Very observant and sensitive new began to see beauty in all shapes, things and people ... want to represent them!
At age 10 when I was offered the first art book, I realized immediately that this was my path. I started as an apprentice in various workshops, and training with various artists, first in porcelain and pottery, then fine arts, going through materials and techniques of artistic expression.
Figurative passionate, by nature I am colorist and experimentalist, carrying for my works, picking up small experiences in my day-to-day.
Completed the course in Painting and Drawing in ar.co (Center for Art and Visual Communication) in 2005 and even before the finish, I received an invitation to teach in a painting school Arts and Since then, I have always worked in the field of plastic expression and growing within this area, I was hugging all projects and opportunities that the art world was giving me!

Realized to date, numerous solo and group exhibitions, national and international ones, and some of my works integrates private collections.
I have dedicated the last 10 years providing teaching in various fine arts schools, as well as courses of Painting and Drawing, to finally get to have my own space, “A ARTE TEM LUGAR” (in English meaning Art Has A Place) (www.facebook.com/aartetemlugar), school of Fine Arts, where I give training and coordinate the activities of the artistic space and where I have been privileged to share the art with others, at the same time devoted every minute working to get power and go beyond valuing my artwork individually.
