Artist Statement

I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where I received a great influence of Japanese culture into my artistic background.

My works depict pure emotions via the delicate brush strokes and the use of deep colours, pigments and materials. My almost ethereal abstract paintings suspend time and location, the paintings convey a recall upon the viewer's memories and feelings. My paintings and photos calls upon introspection, meditation - a place that no one else knows apart ourselves.

My inspiration is about creating a poetic responses to places, cultures, landscapes and nature I perceive in the world around me.  To translate a visual image, the viewer must enter that space not trying to describe what the scene is, but what it feels like.’  How do you see it?
