''Born in Brazil. She studied architecture at Universidad Federal de Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, Brasil, and drawing, painting and Art History at Scuola Lorenzo di Medici, Firenze, Italy. Currently she lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
She lets us see in her portraits distinctive formal influences, from the decorative paintings by Klimt to the sinister element of Modigliani`s eyes. Her portraits are timeless, at might appear as inhuman at a first. But these are real people, with their real expressions as they chose to show themselves to society. They denote strength and sensibility, beauty and coarseness, compassion and firmness. They can be read not only as a search for identity, but rather as a search for the essence.''
