I’ve always felt that photography connected me to the world I saw through the lenses. With the camera in my hands, it was like the minutes stopped, my eyes were lost in the details of the landscape and I surrendered myself. However, over 10 years as a photographer, this feeling of connection deepened, I reconnected with myself and my work developed to new formats beyond the limits of photography. Today, I experiment and create with different medias so I do not have any barriers for my artistic expression.

My work has become an extension of who I am, what I feel and what I believe. My connection, now, is more intense, truer and I feel free to express myself through images, vídeos, projections, words, brushstrokes or even unstructured embroidery.

Current my work is part of several private collections on Brazil, United States, Belgium, Germany, Portugal, Italy and South Korea.
