I am a fashion designer and portrait artist from São Paulo based in San Diego - California. As far as I can remember, I have always loved art and I began to draw and making dolls clothing at an early age.
Modeling came naturally, and it was my involvement with modeling that led me to co-produce a special edition of a beauty magazine in Brazil.
I sang in musicals, operas and operettas such as Carmen, Merry Widow, Mikado and Sweet Charity, and I was a member of the gospel group Madrigal Canto Vivo, conducted by the pianist and conductor Joaquin Paulo Espirito Santo. With Madrigal Canto Vivo, I performed after Natalie Cole's - The daughter of the late Nat King Cole - in a concert in São Paulo. We also performed with the Brazilian singer, Rosa Maria, as well as participated in televisions shows and various performances.
I custom designed for the operetta " Merry Widow", performed by the Senac group " Cena e Canto" in São Paulo, alongside with Rony Konigliaro.
In 2001 after I moved from Brazil to California, I took painting classes with Tom Tiedeman, Martha Matthew and Lola Juris; as I returned to my fashion studies.
I was awarded third place in casual wear at the San Diego Mesa College Golden Scissors Award in 2010. And in 2012, I was awarded the Golden Scissors for best collection.
Nowadays, I enjoy working with Mixed and Digital Media, color pencil and organic fabrics. And It is my passion for art and fashion that lead me to start a wearable art line. Now you can get my artwork printed on on t-shirts, home decor and accessories. I hope you enjoy it!
