I am a Portuguese figurative artist and teacher based in Madeira Island.
At my studio “Helena Jardim Atelier” I find a great joy in sharing my creative process with students across all skill levels, alongside the amazing artist Helena Sirgado Sousa.
Observing my works you´ll notice that the optical verisimilitude of each image and its potential for meaning denounce my quest for a more honest, integral and transparent way of expressing myself, relating to people and perceiving life events. Most portraiture projects are both diaristic 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 (and collectors) from brain picking matters, I spend some time depicting landscapes from places where I love to hike, swim and enjoy silence.
