 Brazilian Artist and Surface Pattern Designer

My growing up could be compared to an Army Brat childhood like. My Dad was kind of  a Big Deal in the Mathematic world.

So we moved a lot to different countries and neighborhoods, Heidelberg, 4th grade at Malcom X School in Berkeley (OMG The coolest Memories) , Campinas, São Carlos, Chicago... wherever the big Universities where. 

He took many pictures and we had the best time, he was also a Painter and taught me how to draw and paint and supported me when I had the "Genius" idea to Graduate in Fine Arts at UNESP. 

Anyway, I have a nostalgic attachment to Prints and Patterns and memories, musics and colors all in my memory. That´s why maybe I think my style keeps going back to Vintage Textures, Colors and Classical or what they call it nowadays "the new Traditional"

 Cultural diversity, my work embodies  blend of traditional and contemporary aesthetics, inspired by  Brazilian heritage and global experience
