Born  in Brasilia, spent 16 months in Melbourne (2001-2002) and 3 years in Barcelona (2004-2007).

Living and learning/making jewellery as a foreigner made me aware of things that in my natural environment I am not. I felt uncomfortable and dealt with it through the making.

Many times I felt my own presence harder to bear and bumped into otherwise numb boundaries all the time. The overall process was very intense and the work done under those circumstances is significant.

Anyway, living abroad has always been a meeting with the stranger in the mirror. Curiously, the longest the absence of sunlight, the strangest I have met myself.
