The transformation of this website


If you have ever visited me in the past, you will see that this site has gone through a drastic transformation: from a tool to illustrate my counselling service into a journal of my work as an artistand illustrator.

This online art page is a tool not only to show my work, but also to elaborate the reasons for this change and to expand the motivations behind my paintings

I ended my previous career as a Mental Health Practitioner in order to transformed myself into a full timeartist and illustrator .
I operate between my residence in South London and my second home on a Brazilian Beach.


I have a keen interest in the human body and the shapes it can take in its maleness and femaleness and the figure deriving from the fusion of mind and body

Figure is expressed as a primordial feeling in a consecution of symbols executed allowing the child to take the driver sit, without any restrictions or shame

Home. Bad sisters

Bad sisters

An expressionist interpretation of the intrinsically abusive dynamics of certain family relationships. The three sisters share the same space, but they are clearly divided by their self-appointed rank. The one in the centre of the figure is sitting down with the other two fussing about her as if she was a piece of merchandise to display at the best offerer. The other side of Cinderella

Home. Forro

Forro

Expressionist figure representing the traditional dance of the North-East of Brazil. Usually played with three instruments, armonium, drum and triangle and danced in couple, cheek to cheek, with fast, small steps and sensual body movements. In my version the dancers are both male
