"When I was a child, I enjoyed painting portraits and coloring-in all types of drawings. I collected all sorts of magazines and leaflets featuring frescoes. I would scribble the name of my favorite artists, their dates of birth, their nationality, themes, etc. My favorite hobby was looking at all the famous paintings I cold find in books. I admired Renaissance works just as much the paintings of Picasso and Dalí. I would spend hours on end looking at their self-portraits, landscapes and figures.
"I come from a family of painters and musicians. My maternal grandfather was a born artist specializing in traditional scenes of landscapes and murals. His main theme was bullfighting. My paternal grandfather was a renowned musician.
"I traveled extensively throughout South America, but I chose to make Brazil my home. I am now blessed with the arrival of my son!
