M.A. Fine Artist and Printmaker
I am an award winning Artist from Portugal. I studied for 5 years at Lisbon facul;ty of Fine Arts before moving to London to further my studies. There I did a Masters in Printmaking at Camberwell College, University of the Arts London. I have had many shows all over Portugal, in the UK and also exhibited in locations such like New York, London, Rome, Berlin, South Korea and many other locations. I now work out of my Studio in Montreal, Canada.
Below is a list of some of my shows over the years. And some of my awards. If you like what you see then please follow me on Twitter using the link above. I love to communicate with my fellow artists, via Social media, groups or even in person. I love old books, old movies and theatre. I Can be found most of the time with my head in research at the library or in my nearest museum taking in the shows.
