I was born in Brazil in 1967 and raised in New Orleans where I studied fine art at Delgado Community College and the New Orleans Art Institute. My art has been shown in cities such as Miami, Hot Springs, New Orleans and Houston. I also sell a number of my works online. I currently reside in Houston. I have been a freelance artist, and have been teaching art privately for over 20 years . My specialties are watercolor and acrylics.
