This time I thought I'd share a couple of sketches from a page in my sketch book, where (yes, my sketch book is a place) I sit for hours and hours engrossed in creating and following invisible lines, colors and rhythms, rendering them visible. When I sketch, if I'm not out in the world, I like to sit at my drafting table, or on a couch, surrounded by pens, watercolors and colored pencils of all varieties. I love having them all at my finger tips, that way I can scan the array of colors and textures available and pick up the one that matches the moment :)
is an artist living & working in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado.

I live, draw, design and paint in & out of my pistachio green home studio affectionately known as "the hut" at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado. I see the mountains from my window everyday and they are still as beautiful and as inspiring as the day we met. I have a little garden where I grow collard greens, chard, kale, bell and hot peppers, some other veggies and flowers too. I once lived and traveled around the Australian desert in a yellow VW bus for a year and picked peas, peaches, nectarines and nashi pears for a living.
I love bento boxes, chopsticks and bowls, bonsai trees, teas, tea cups and tea pots. I love all kinds of Festivals (art, film, music, moon, international, fiery foods, cycling, balloon). I LOVE Balloons and Lanterns, Yoga, Hot Springs and Spa Treatments, Sleeping outside in the Summertime, Riding my Bicycle, Dancing and Telemark Skiing. I want to get good at spinning POI!
I am Brazilian, British, Belgian and American. I used to wonder whether my art and paintings could really offer anything of true value to another human being. I no longer wonder. I sing HU. I think birthdays are special and love to celebrate my friends.
