My main source of inspiration is nature. The older I become, the deeper my bond with the natural world, which in turn is reflected in what I choose to draw and paint. Drawing serves many purposes for me: it relaxes me, and it makes me feel happy in my very core. It is fascinating to attempt to recreate the perfection created by nature, and looking at a beautiful landscape fills me with energy and a feeling of absolute calm.

I live amongst the oak forests and rolling hills of Santo Tirso, in the valleys located between Porto's Douro river and the Minho river further north. Everywhere you look there are beautiful dry-stone walls, bubbling streams and waterfalls, and majestic oaks. It is a truly magical corner of Portugal.
