To be able to do art for a living is a blessing. But even more of a blessing is seeing the happiness in my clients’ eyes.
I remember loving art since my first set of crayons. I would get in trouble for sketching on the walls, but I simply couldn’t help myself. I have always felt this urge to paint, to express my emotions and ideas through art.
At first I never really considered art as a career so I went to Advertising School. Circumstances had me moving to New York and I finally dropped my career as an Art Director to go back to school at the Art Students League.
I was young and believed I would conquer the world! I won awards and got to show in some fancy galleries until circumstances changed again and I ended up back in Brazil, dropping everything and dedicating four years to being a full time volunteer at a buddhist temple.
From a presumptuous kid to a humble servant and then back into the world. So much has happened in my life and I regret nothing. It all brought me here. I still carry the passion for making great art, but instead of focusing on art that may eventually become important in history, I have decided to dedicate my time into making art to bring JOY to people.
