‘About My Artworks’
She studied textile, fashion and interior design, where model drawing and compositions were a focal point.
“After my creative studies, I took lessons in drawing, abstraction and mixed techniques by different artists.
And I studied 17th-century painting techniques for three years.”
"My process starts by making the composition on canvas with papers and mixed media.
The creations of these compositions are fashioned in an abstract genre.
By making my Compositions and Color Palette I use my experiences as a Decorator in Fashion and Interior design"
"In my Artwork I mixed studies in techniques of the 17th Century Art, Contemporary and Figurative Arts.
A detail in a Landscape, an Antique object or Patterns of Interior or Fashion Fabrics inspires me to create my Artwork.
Mediums I use consist of Oils, Acrylics, Charcoal and Silver & Gold Leaves."
“The contemporary time in which we live inspires me. Identity ‘awakening in time and memory’
the undergoing transformations. A journey to an inner mature consciousness. The change process takes place in everyone’s inner world.”
Her Artwork was exhibited in Luxembourg and she exhibits regurarly in Portugal and The Netherlands.
