Artist Statement -

"I do not do copies or reproductions of my artwork. All my pieces are unique. Those who purchase my paintings are assured that nobody else will have the same piece."

"I have a lot of passion in my colors and my paintings show my emotions."

Marisa Ventura was born in Angola in 1969. In 1975 the family moved to Lisbon, Portugal, where she currently resides.

At an early age her talent was evident. Although her career in business administration and family obligations occupied most of her time, she never gave up on her dream. She has enrolled in painting classes and is gradually developing her own unique style.

Marisa combines a wonderful sense of color, line and texture in her depictions of life.
