(E) My passion for drawing began long ago. My mother said since I was 4 years old I already loved to draw. When I was 6 or 7. In a big chest we had in our home, I found some of my mother's art notebooks from her school of magisterium. I was simply delighted to see her ilustrations, drawings and collages. Mom also painted with oil in canvas and fabric, knitting, crochet, embroidery and arraiolo rug. Naturally her main craft abilities gave ispiration to me.
At age 8 I had already figured out that a white paper sheet and pointed colored pencils were all I needed to give form to the ideas that popped from my mind. The animated cartoons from my childhood also got me inspired, especially He-man, She-ra, Thundercats, Dungeons & Dragons combined, with my imagination, were constant themes in my drawings. Lots of fantasy and colors.
"A Árvore" (The tree) is the first drawing from a series of 6 I during the first 6 months of 2016. When I look at it, I can understand how much my childhood experiences are still present in the lines and colors I choose. My "Miami Serie" is an expression of colors, forms, experiences and emotions lived at that city of Florida State, in US.
