Artist working in oils, acrylic and clay. I’m interested in how words effect an image and vice versa in art. I’m also applying some of my learnings from poetry - such as letting the work form itself. Although, of course, looking back, every mark, every word has been a decision, conscious or not. Some of the recent work has been about giving in to chance, letting a pot be decorated by fire and smoke in smoke firing.
I have a fascination with rubbing back, abrasion, erosion. Something that has developed with my recent working with oxides and slips on clay.
I’m often inspired by relationships, current situations, things overheard, things misheard.
I would describe my paintings as intuitive, playful and energetic. Rich with colour and emotion, expressively painted and visually engaging. I work in a media range of acrylic paint, ink, collage and resins.
Born in Brazil, moved to England in 2004. Passionate about art I had private tuition for two years learning about materials and working from observation. From 2010 my art changed and I started to paint some abstracts and conceptual works and decided to paint full time. I use a big variety of materials and subjects and always show a bit of my own mind even in realistic paints. Each one of my paints are unique and special for me independently of the price and that is why I always deliver on time and in excellent condition.
