Born in Portugal and living for more than 25 years in the territory we now call Canada, I am a visual artist and designer currently developing a curatorial practice.
My work was exhibited across Europe and Canada. I participated at Photophobia 2017, hosted by Hamilton Artists Inc. and the Art Gallery of Hamilton. I also exhibited at Fashion Art Toronto in 2014 and 2016. I gave a lecture at the Textile Museum Canada in the context of Subtle Technologies Festival in 2016 and presented a solo exhibition during DesignTO 2019. I am currently working on a large scale installation and several bodies of work for a solo exhibition in January 2022.
I draw with threads and textiles. I weave, intertwine and forge links between the virtual and the material, between the imaginary and the tangible. In all my creations, I take care to be socially and environmentally responsible. I choose natural, recycled and local materials as much as possible. In this sense, I propose a different approach to the use of fibre and textile materials and hope to raise awareness to aspects of our culture which go unnoticed but which condition our life. My hope is to awaken to new ways of seeing the world and share moments of wonder that enrich our everyday life.
