I am thrilled with this beautiful drawing. And it so well packed for the long journey! Thank you!
I love what I do
My name is Cristina. I hope you enjoy viewing my artworks as much as I enjoy creating them.
I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I can say that I appreciate and admire all kinds of art since I was a little child. This interest has always accompanied me in all phases of my life.
From a very early age my parents took the whole family to attend many exhibitions, art museums and events. We were always armed with sketchbooks to reproduce any artwork that we liked. These were moments of great fun and very interesting experiences which certainly left their marks on my happy childhood.
I own a degree in architecture, obtained in Rio and have worked in this field for several years. I have worked on many different projects including interiors design.
In 1989, I moved to Lisbon, Portugal.
Right after moving to Portugal, I decided to devote some more time to my passion. I have attended several courses at the National Society of Fine Arts in Lisbon, which opened my interests for new fields. It was there that I have improved my skills and started new experiences in figurative art.
The sources of inspiration I use in my work include:
nature, sun, blue sky, strong wind, mountain, sea, travel places,
music, dance, people, friends,
textures, colors, papers,
everything that moves, anything I admire or makes me smile ...
life, which I love deeply.
I am currently a high school art teacher in charge of teaching visual education to children from 12 to 15 years old. I still work as a free lancer architect. In parallel, I have my own studio located a few blocks from home where I can fully express my art and develop new kinds of externalizing my love for my family and for life.
It is so grateful to share my world with you.
Have a lovely day!
