Hello everyone! I'm a portuguese visual artist, mostly a passionate collage maker! I've been developing several projects with different media such as old photography, postcards, collage on canvas and animation. I'm stunned by old vintage photography from the XX century, especially the 50's. The pictures seam so theatrical, so magical and that strikes me.

My main concerns are about bringing up some world’s issues content and personal experiences. I seek out the relation in between the images. And while so I develop surrealist compositions in order to enter our unconscious. It’s all about solving a puzzle nutcracker! Collage it’s an image gameplay and the combinations within the pictures are infinite. 

On the other hand, I'm a collage teacher as well. I've done several collage workshops for different events such as festivals, civic centers or galleries. I'm also an artist member of the collage collective Coll2 . This multicultural collective is concerned about using the collage media to talk about world's issues themes such as climate change, gender violence, migration, feminism or even the global pandemic.
