This is a organic, delicate project. With more than 200
photographs.The authenticity is trying to reinvent beauty where it
once was in the flowers that I found in my way. Creating a fluid
watercolour like of unexpected beauty. The flowers, sometimes
imperfect, old, dry - become invisible, forgettable for must
people. Photographing them as it is a portrait or even a artistic
nude, they once more inspire desire. The Orchidaceae is a part of
the project that shows stages of dying orchids in black and white
negatives, which highlights the details and petal ribs. Named after
women to compares the ageing process women passes through
and how beautiful and especial it can be.

I'm a Brazilian Conceptual Photographer, for me photography is a life time dream, a therapy and a deep necessity.

I have first graduated in Graphic Design (FAAP-Brasil), and strangthen my abilities with 2 masters: Marketing for Business (FAAP-Brasil) and in Marketing Communication (ESPM-Brasil). for almost 20 years I have worked in design, marketing and communication , so photography was always in my life, next to my work or as a vacation hobby.

Then my life turned away. Sad family lost. Happy new mother. I had to change everything. A couple of years later I got my pieces together, and finally decided to study Photography for real in Escola Panamericana de Arte e Design, I discovery myself as a enthusiast photographer. I also graduated being a importante piece in Nexos, a exhibition organised with curatorship by Rosely Nakagawa. (rewarding experience.)

Another milestone for my work was to be selected to Lens Culture Emerging Talents Awards gallery and received great critics from important brazilian artists, architects and art curators, what made me went deeper and deeper as we can see at my work.
