(E) My passion for drawings come from so far. My mother say since I was 4 years old I already loved to draw. When I was 6 or 7 I faund in a big chest we had in our home, 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 ended in ispiration to me.
At age of 8 I already had conscience that an 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, in special He-man, She-ra, Thundercats, Dungeons & Dragons combined with my imagination were constant themes on my drawings. Lots of fantasy and colors.
"A Árvore" (The tree) is the first drawing from a serie of 6 I have done on the first 6 months of 2016. When I look it, I can understand how much my that childhood experiences are still present on the traces and colors I choose. My "Miami Serie" é an expression of colors, forms, experiences and emotions lived at that city of Florida State, in US.
