Artist Statement

I was born in Brasil and I live in São Paulo. I am married and we have two children. Since I was a little girl, I was always fascinated with nature, all shades of green, its mood and its beauty. But I started painting in oil on canvas and only in 1980 when my landscapes were already very transparent, I moved to paper and watercolors. Watercolors was for me like a box of chocolates. I just fell in love with a block of paper one day and little by little I left my canvas and oils tubes aside, to follow my true love. It is quite intriguing because I was not a big fan of water and paper when I was at art school... but now, just watch me !!!

Since 1967 I have been attending and teaching courses and workshops in Art / Watercolor, as the one I took with Dong Kingman in New York in 1998.
