She started exhibiting in 2016 and since then has exhibited at Christies, Delphian Gallery, Casa das Histórias Paula Rego, among many others.

‘I work primarily in drawings and paintings, mostly done from imagination. The subject that has interested me the longest is exploring human nature. It can be said that the images I create are about intimacy and a search for connection in both the interior and exterior world. 

Even though my process changes from time to time, for “Slap” I created a lot of drawings where I studied mainly the composition and the shapes. It was from one of these that I developed the painting.’
