What is your favourite word? 

Mine is “Água”, “water” in Portuguese. I’ve always liked how it sounds, what it evokes, its importance.

Contemplating a river, the sky, clouds, the ocean or a waterfall makes me feel I'm breathing spiritually, it brings me plenitude. This window between landscape and spirituality is the source of my work.


I'm interested in natural textures, patterns, natural phenomena and fragments within a place. These visual moments lead me to something bigger than us; I feel that the Visible leads me to the Invisible, it connects what I see and my inner self.

I consider this uncanny experience as universal, each person has their own way of connecting with landscape and that’s why I keep researching and creating.


I'm a multidisciplinary artist who works with printmaking, photography, painting and drawing.

Mystery, time, perception, the Sublime, ambiguity, soft transitions, overlayed elements, merged backgrounds and foregrounds are key-ideas within my practice.

I have been using new technologies to create my matrixes. I use fragments of landscapes in order to represent mysterious, unknown places. These digital collages are printed digitally on a very delicate Japanese paper enhancing nature’s ephemerality, lightness and fragility. This represents the thin border between the visible and invisible world. I also use analogical printmaking techniques to print my images such as etching, photo polymer and woodcut.


My current body of work is about the connection between a mother and child, based on my personal experience. Blurred, delicate images express its intangibility. And “Água/Water” is always present.


Vija Celmins and her surfaces, Sugimoto and his seascapes, Matisse, JMW Turner and Christiane Baumgartner are some references for my practice.
