About

My Way as an Artist

My trajectory as a craftsman started when I was a child, drawing, painting and playing with my gramma bead boxes.. I think that my attraction for and necessity of Art born there, a way to find a relief to my grief when loosing my mom at the age of 7. Art and creativity heal.. I believe on this with all the force of my heart. Years passed by and when I was a pre-teen, I kept myself very enthusiastic about it. I remember being 12 years old and going home from school. I used to stop at a street fair where the hippies of my town sold their stuff and I made endless questions about wire techniques, materials and tools they used for making the jewelry. The world craftsmanship had captured my eyes and my hands and heart. I was thirsting for creating, leading me to find my path as an artisan. I have a bacheIor degree in Musicotherapy (and this choice came from the same belief, that Art can bring people to another instance of enchantment), but life and practice graduated my hands.
I came from Brazil, a very cultural and rich country in terms of literature, music and visual arts. After loosing my mother, I grew up in a family environment very conducive to my development as an artist. I also was born in the 70s, a remarkable epoch in my country. In the later years of my childhood that living energy of the true art reverberated like a wave that reached all of us .. an epoch very rich in Brazil.
Currently I live in the United States with my husband (who is from Canada) and my son, American, the sun of my life! It has not been easy to leave everything and start a new life here, especially in terms of job possibilities and choices. However, I remind myself, everyday, that I belong to a place, my place in the Universe where I can feel a child of the World, wherever I go, it opens doors for me. So I decided to do what I do best: work with my hands and opened my first shop on etsy. Tribalis was born in a moment of my life that I was feeling very connected with my past history of life and the 70's, a remarkable time all over the world.. I can see the value that it has for me and try to translate it into jewelry designs, a style that can touch the ones who can feel the force of that decade and attracted by genuine craftsmanship.
My work draws on many influences, the rustic, the old and the new. I'm always looking to learn new techniques and materials to enrich my work. Most part of my work is made from sketch. I transform wires and metal sheet into wearable pieces of art.
When I'm not working in my atelier, I spend much time with my son, who teaches me, every day, how to be a better person in the World. I find my happiness as a mother and wife and as an artist.
I am very grateful for your support. This is my full time job... actually I work and study to be a RN. During the afternoons I am with my son following him on his adventures, helping on home works, bringing him to music classes, soccer, swimming, cooking, organizing the house.
Thanks for our support and for choosing and buying my handmade creations. You are valuing the hard work of of the craftsman's hands. I do what I do because of my love of Art!
