The Magic Is The Unknown: my creations explore the human mind and its inability to distinguish reality from imagination, arguing whether raising consciousness through ART can lead to supreme realization.


Initially I studied Philosophy and English Proficiency in Lisbon before moving to London where I worked at The Hempel Hotel alongside hotelier and interior designer Anouska Hempel. Afterwards I immersed myself into the artistic world of Vidal Sassoon taking a Diploma course graduating with distinctions.


These interwoven experiences led me to study painting at the Slade School of Fine Art where I met Turner Prize nominee Goshka Macuga and fashion designer Arkadius who later became one of my private collectors.


Since then my practice has evolved to include experimentations in both photography and painting mediums transmuting them into series such as Transcending the Ego, Nothing Is What It Seems, Lux Aeterna and Metamorphosis. The essence of the dialogue created perhaps is to challenge our perception of who we are, our relationship with the universe and one another, with a view to elevate human condition.
