I studied Painting in university (ESAP-Guimarães) (3 years) and design (2 years).
Then I studied master’ degree (2 years) creation of contemporaneous Art at Aveiro
I frequented Drawing and Photography Workshops, Textiles Workshops. I was a
residential artiste (Nodar- Portugal) about rural sounds.
I began to participate in collective exhibition since 1993 and made my first
exhibition on 1998.
I organized art workshops and exhibitions for children and adults where they could
learn to paint or three-dimensional objects.
During my studies on the master I worked with textiles. To increase my knowledge
I worked some weeks with traditional embroiderers in northern Portugal. I made
some workshops about art-textiles (knitting, textile applications, rating and
features textiles). I went to the conference of Contextile 2012.
In my work I use the memory like handwork, used textiles, old technic and the
context of the work. I try to explore memories elements like sensation and senses
and make the work interact with to the public.
