Who and what I'm looking for
In my native Brazil, in London and San Francisco, I have trained and worked in a diverse range of disciplines, through oil painting, silk-screen printing, film animation, hat design, gemology, ergonomics, interior accessories and jewellery design and manufacture.

I have developed weaving techniques in silver and gold that I have been using to create unique pieces throughout 25 years of jewellery-making.

The interlaced silver and gold ribbon hint of the social fabric of Rio de Janeiro State, where I grew up. A place where strands of wealth and poverty, ethics and violence, culture and corruption are constantly intertwining.

My jewellery series have been exhibited and sold in galleries in London, Scotland, Ireland, Japan, Brazil, and the USA.

Parallel to the jewellery-making, I have developed two work series of contemporary interior objects and sculptural lighting pieces designed and made in collaboration with wood artist Garvan McGrane and inspired by the elements water and air. Our common interest lies in re-assessing materials, with a true open mind. Reclaimed and re-used materials are the focus of the objects series and their inherent qualities are brought out in every design.

In 2004 I completed a MA Degree in Design Studies from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, in London, where I lived for 8 years and established my design-craft-art practice.

In 2011 I set up a workshop/studio in Cork City, Ireland, where I am dedicating more time to figurative drawing, and am currently working on four drawings series and on print-making.

My interests lie on figurative explorations on cross-cultural identity and womanhood.

The bizarre and the idiosyncratic, the beautiful and harmonious are present in every day life- I strive to uncover them in an attempt to provoke, disturb, inspire and prompt reflection on our communality as one human race.

Design Craft Art : I try to blur their boundaries... good thought and good design that should go into the piece, the hand-crafted aspect and the skill which it requires as well as my artistic expression- all three are as important to me.

Member of CRAFTed: Crafts Council of Ireland's Education Panel for the development and delivery of training programmes in the Visual Arts curriculum at primary level.

Project Manager at Art in the Park, The Lord Mayor's Pavilion, Fitzgerald Park, Cork City. In this beautiful Arts and Crafts style building I create art inspired by the park, as well as invite other Cork City artists for collaborations/exhibitions and offer courses/workshops and arts facilitation sessions.

Member of Visual Artists Ireland, registered with the Crafts Council of Ireland and the London Assay Office, and am thankful for the support of the New Irish Art Project and for the assistance of the Cork City Enterprise Board Ltd.

I currently work as an independent artist designer maker creating wall and wearable art from my Cork City atelier
