“If the artist has outer and inner eyes for nature, nature rewards him by giving him inspiration.”


Wassily Kandinsky



 I was born in Portugal and currently live in beautiful Edinburgh, Scotland. I started drawing before I could even talk - my parents enshrined proof of this by filling drawers and boxes with so many of my childhood drawings.
People have always been my favourite subject and my preferred medium is oil paint. I love encompassing old religious iconography into contemporary portraits, giving viewers a little bit to decipher.  
When moving to Scotland I also started focusing on portraits of other Nature(s) too – of the local Wildlife, of birds & woodland animals, which opened up another way into selling prints & original illustrations.
