"From my early childhood in Sergipe, I have had a true fascination for topics related to the Creator and to magic. I still remember with great affection and nostalgia the days when all the children of my neighborhood met at my house to hear the stories my Aunt Senhorinha told - true fairy tales of deep enchantment. For me, this was the beginning of my passion for literature and for the arts in general. While still an adolescent, I began to develop an interest for geometry and I had my first contact with the mandalas that today are the principal theme in my work. <br><br>
"I took a course in painting at Parque Laje School of Visual Arts and today I work creating mandalas to stay in contact with the Divine."
In the Andes, the Land of the Four Corners, mountains are sacred. So is culture. The Nazca lines, the Wari glyphs, the Quipu knots and the complex multi-colored textiles of the Incas are all recorded and live on the work of contemporary Peruvian artisans.
