I am a Portuguese figurative painter and teacher based in Madeira Island.
My work denounces my pursuit for realism and a more transparent way of communicating and taking in life events. Most paintings are portraiture projects both commissioned and personal as I often chose friends, family and other inspiring people as models to address universal concerns and narratives.
Whenever I need to free myself from brain picking matters, I spend some time depicting landscapes of places where I love to hike and enjoy silence.
My studio is a former Madeira Wine warehouse where I find great joy in sharing my painting process with students across all skill levels, alongside my dear friend and amazing artist Helena Sirgado Sousa.
