I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.  Georgia O'Keeffe


Having worked as an architect for many years, it was very natural to feel the attraction to pottery as a way of expression, as I could use three dimensional shapes in a much more free and organic way.

I learned to use the ceramic shapes as a blank canvas, in which I can explore my love for drawing and painting. I am certain that my Brazilian origins have something to do with my taste for everything colorful, as South American exuberance in nature and imagery are my best inspiration.

My pieces are one of a kind, and I work on each one of them for as long as I need, which sometimes can be several weeks.  Being able to make something beautiful with my own hands is always the source of great pleasure.
