Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, my love and interest in Art started as a child, one who was very shy and sensitive but always curious and appreciative of beauty. Having a delicate and creative mom and other artistic family members from my father's side have influenced and inspired me.
In High School, I started growing my artistic knowledge and know-how in a Technologic Arts and Crafts Professional Course. Then grown-up life began, and career opportunities came for my other passion, Child Development, and Education; along came my two own precious children, and to make ends meet a couple of administrative jobs until 2015 when I founded my own business that combines my love for Arts and Education through Play. That was a wonderful experience and a big step in pursuing my dreams. After two years, I saw my business couldn't grow more in that space and time, and I was longing to evolve in my career and personal development. That was when I decided to come to the USA and study Business and Arts. Meanwhile, by the serendipity of destiny, I had a spiritual awakening and now feel more than ever connected with my Soul's essence and purpose.
That's where I am now, exploring my creativity and potential as an Artist, being guided through my intuition and aligned with the Universe, my free spirit, and positive energy, and it is my pleasure to share that with You!
