I am absolutely fascinated by cities. Because of this passion, I graduated in architecture in Rio de Janeiro. While at the university, I started my art studies at the Modern Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro and experienced different kinds of media and techniques, from oil painting to jewelry making., but after being fully introduced to watercolour it soon became another passion.
I started off with small sized watercolours; experimenting on the density and variety of brushstrokes; exploring the wet in wet effects; enjoying the action of the water and it´s surprising results and testing myself and the medium to the limits.
Then I moved on to work with large scale canvas and acrylic colours, trying to achieve the same effects as in watercolour. My works grew stronger, with more intense and explosive colours.
After graduating I persued a career as an architect, working with urban issues.
It was while coordinating a group of geographers and urbanists that I developed a growing interest in the connection between maps and art, inspired by the aerial views and sattelite photos of cities which emerged from my computer screen. These beautiful abstract forms influenced me to develop the theme Urban Colours. So I decided it was time to reinvent herself and become fully an artist. In october 2004 I made her solo exhibition Imaginary Maps at the Centro Cultural Banco do Nordeste, Fortaleza, Northeast of Brazil.
