Here is the story behind my paintings and this New Collection.
I was going through a deep Burnout syndrome and starting a journey in depression. I was having a horrible nightmare every night, the same nightmare for 5 months in a row. This situation was driving me crazy. I was so deep down, that I couldn’t even grab a pencil and paper to draw a line..
So one day, everything changed. I decided to ask for help (to admit that I needed help was the hardest part). But I did, and at the same time, my lovely husband came home with a little surprise: My Cat! And he said “This is “Furinho” (it means ‘little hole’) - he had this hole in his head after some other animal attack. (you can see in the pictures) He was abandoned at the front door of some friends of ours with other siblings, but they couldn’t have all of those kittens. No one wanted to adopt him because of the hole, and he was the last one. So my husband decided right away to bring him home.
The point is: I looove cats, and I always wanted to have a cat again (I’ve had one in my childhood). But, and it’s a Big But, my husband is super allergic to cats. So, when he got home with Furinho and put him in my arms, I couldn’t believe this was happening! And my first reaction was like “we can’t have a cat, what are you doing?” And I cried. My husband was giving me a proof of love.
And since then, I started to climb up out of the pit I was. And I ´m falling in love again with my work.
And another miracle happened: My husband didn’t have any single one allergy reaction since then. It was meant to be! I believe that nothing happens by chance and God have His secret plan even though we don’t understand it.
I always helped animal shelters in my life and also helped abandoned or lost dogs or cats to find their owners or a new home. The ones I couldn’t find, I adopted.
Anyway, today, I found a way that I can possibly help more animals. So I decided to donate 5% of all my sales to some shelters I trust.
This is my first collection since then and It’s totally inspired in my cat and in all other good things that happened in my life. There’s this feeling of happiness and gratitude when I finish each one of the illustrations. After some readings and researches, I found some articles about the positive feelings we have when we look a peace of art that we see as beautiful. There’s an instantaneous release of dopamine, a chemical that is linked to feelings of love into our brain.
And that’s exactly what I feel for each one of my piece of art from start to finish.
I hope this collection brings JOY to you!
