I translate what I experience into art
I've had a professional visual and music career since 2005 when I was a young girl, just 15 years old. I grew up surrounded by art, poetry, and music in the middle of the mountains in north Portugal. Living in an incredible natural beauty, I nevertheless found myself isolated and distant from the rest of the world. I was a part of the generation that grew up with an entire novel global tool for communication: the World Wide Web. Ever since I started my artistic career, the Internet has empowered me to communicate my art with the world. An ongoing wish and drive mixed with a grounding experience of immense nature gave me the artistic make-up and opportunity to explore a very singular, magical visual universe that I've embodied through singing, producing, and live performances. My most recent project has been to re-create and shape my visions, memories, and experience with Virtual Reality. Currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark, my art explores both my memories of the old mountains in Portugal and the old but now modernized Scandinavian city with all its charm, "hygge", and history.
