As an artist and creative practitioner I am captivated by the potential of working with clay as it offers boundless scope for exploration and application.

Teaching ceramics informs and inspires my artistic practice; I love the synergy and the magic that can occur through collaboration.
A particular focal point to the work has been ceramic installations, murals and tile pieces. Key to many of these projects has been a bringing together of people and a harnessing of their creative capabilities.

I was born in Rio de Janeiro and came to live in the UK during early infancy. Raised and educated in London, I have always maintained a strong connection to the country of my origin, Brazil, and am fluent in Portuguese and Spanish.

In 1994 I moved to Brazil where I spent the next five years. During this period I began training in art and design. This education continued in the UK where I returned to pursue my studies further.

A fascination for clay and ceramics developed whilst on a 3D design foundation course; leading to undergraduate study of Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins, where I graduated with Honours in 2005.
