I have been living in Toronto for the past 20 years having grown up in Brazil and Uruguay. I first arrived in Montreal to pursue my studies at McGill University before calling Toronto my home. Photography has been my great passion while raising my three children. Through my photography I am always discovering the world around me. 

Artist Statement
My photographs express the different facets of myself and my curiosity of the world around me. I am especially drawn to the abstract and look to capture light, shapes and colour. 
In 2021 I became involved with NFTs and am developing new art in the crypto art space. It is an exciting time for me to begin this new journey. 
My photography travels down many different paths, just like my life.
