art is my passion

… already as a child i was interested in dancing and had ballet lessons.

After school i studied Art in Lisbon and began with painting, writing novels and creating Art.

With 19, because of my “wanderlust”, i moved to Miami and was working in the travel business.

Then i moved to Italy and learned to play saxophone and cello,

loved to play roles as an actress and dancer in theatres and worked in art galleries.

These days i keep myself busy with my oil paintings, my novels and, sometimes, restoring antique furniture.

Besides i love to be with my pets in my house in Italy and to travel with my mascot Crackita.
