"I have planned to perfect my style in either Paris or New York, but while I wait for the opportunity to arise, I'll keep on painting…."
"I was born in the state of Paraíba, northeastern Brazil and when I was 21 years of age I moved to Rio, where I discovered new opportunities, museums, books, etc. My incursions in art began with wax pencils, but it wasn't for me.

"My interest in art began when I was a child - one of my aunts loved art and was an artisan herself. She was of great influence on me, as was the rest of my family, for they are all musicians and now my two children have become musicians as well. There's a big space reserved for art in our home and we support one another in the development of our different abilities.

"By the end of the 1990s I reached the conclusion I was ready to start selling my paintings, though I continued to evolve as an artist - perfecting techniques and styles.

This is a type of painting designed to dialogue with the environment through color, texture, and a modular composition.
"Novica offers me the opportunity to promote my work outside of Brazil and so to the people that consult the Novica website I would like to say, invest in art, support artists and their exhibits, because this is the way to build a more beautiful world."
