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. 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.
