MY STORY

Born in Parana, South of Brazil. Art manifestations have always been a part of my life. Since the earliest memories, I felt challenged to grasp the essence of art and its various possibilities. Something that absorbed my inner self and engaged on a long intellectual and practical research. In 1986, I chose to study Art and Anthroposophy at the Studiumjahr Goetheanum Institute, in Dornach, Switzerland, which would impact and influence my career for many years into the future. After living for a time in Europe, I went back to Brazil and participated in two advanced training programs within the Athroposophical Artistic field. One of the paths that caught my interest and later became part of my career was Artistic Therapy, at the Artistic Therapy Program at Paulus Center and the other was painting, drawing and composition, at the Art Center, both In São Paulo. Because of all my deep life experiences with art connection, my atelier has been an active space for work as an Art Therapist, Art Teacher and Painter. It is also a place where I have a permanent collection of my art work. Co-Founder of Atelier Without Borders a non-profit social organization dedicated to the arts.
