Biography: Born in 1963 in Umtali, Zimbabwe, where she lived till her 14?s, finished her studies in Madrid, Spain, where she taught English till 1994. Since very young she reviled great interest and ability in drawing and painting, developing her knowledge throughout the years in an autodidact way. Giving most of her free time to plastic arts, especially painting and sculpture, took this a full time activity in the mid 90?s, when she came to live in Lisbon, Portugal.Using an enormous variety of techniques, her art roots spread in several ways. Her open and spiritual way of being, reflect in her bright colors and in her simple line in the abstract with nearly primitive lines and a mix of surrealism, a confrontation between a certain expression of ingenuity and affirmation of maturity. Her landscapes reflect, by her colors and themes, moments of great serenity, very rare a melancholic form is given to her work. Her nudes reveal a certain provocative spirit which transports to great sensual work bodies surrounded by flame colors. There are in her ‘portfolio’ various Oils on canvas and cardboard, works in Mosaic as well as Sculptures in Stoneware. Several of her art works are present in several embassies in Lisbon, such as the Japan’s, Belgium’s and Turkey’s.
