I was born in Santa Maria, Brazil but have lived in the US since 2004. Six years ago I moved to Miami which, together with my husband and our three children, I now call home. My career started in psychology and psychoanalysis, but slowly, Art began to manifest itself more powerfully in my life, gaining strength and permanence.
Art has always been present in my life. First with dance and music, and many years later in psychology and psychoanalysis. Art has helped me as I delved deeper into my emotions, my relationships, exploring different vibes, different colors.
The art of exploring new spaces has long been part of who I am. Attending college in a city far from home, seeking a graduate degree in another, entering marriage, moving abroad, living in different cities like Chicago, St. Louis, Boston and Miami, and finally and essentially, three times in the “art” of motherhood…are forms of dancing according to music, new experiences, creating new contexts, making Art of life’s varied colors. Some days, the blue of sky and sea imposes itself; on others, yellow with its sunny warmth and glow; or passionate red; on others, the peaceful serenity of white; on many others the gray of cloudy, gloomy days, arriving to black, like the darkness of fears, but also of glamour and refinement.
And so, my admiration for the arts has been there, by my side, ever present, until I finally found the courage to unleash what had always been there, translating my life experiences onto canvas.
