I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and like so many wanted to experience the American Dream. I moved to United States in April, 2000.

As an immigrant, learning a new way of life in a country that you only dreamed of living in, it can be daunting.  

After a lifetime in the business world, I reignited my passion for art at the young age of 55, I picked up a charcoal pencil and a sketch pad and began to unleash the artist within. That was the beginning on my path to absolute creativity. I loved all forms of art, and have painted abstract using acrylic, oils, art tools,  and practiced all mediums of art.

In my art studio I surround myself with the sweet sounds of music, sometimes a gentle breeze will flow through my room, and I will occasionally glance outside my window soaking in the picturesque tree lined street.  

As today, I was awarded twice with the “Artist Merit & Achievement Award” by the Jerry Goldstein Foundation.

That fueled my desire to paint.

I finally found home creating my art.
