Still Lyfe and Flowers
My parents had immigrated from Portugal to Brazil, just after their marriage. So I was born in Santos, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, in 1958.
Two years late, my parents decided to live in the capital, São Paulo.
I was about 8 years old, when I began to be interested in space, inspired by the original "Star Trek" film on TV. In this passion, I began to draw distant worlds, I created exotic persons, superheroes of the space. I idealised cartoon characters similars to "The Monkees" players that I was a fan.
Between 1970 and 1972, I attended college in the district of "Pinheiros" in São Paulo Silveira Ginásio Industrial Estadual Guaracy.

After an 8-day trip aboard a cruise ship Italian, Eugenio C, we arrived in Portugal, where I lived for almost 13 years.
Without leaving my passion for space, I continued to draw and started the oil painting at the age of 16 years. My art work, was always self-learning.
As I was not able to catch the stars, without spaceship, I found my interest in a profession very close to the technique. I chose to study and pursue a career as a Electronic Engineer.
The school I attended for my studies, was the "Instituto Superior Técnico de Lisboa"
During all these years of my studies, I rarely touched my brushes, because the invisible world of electronics and telecommunications fascinated me a lot. But of course, drawing and painting are always remained my favorite hobby.
In 1986 on the occasion of my marriage, I went to live in France, near Paris. I really enjoyed the inspiration gained from visits to various museums: the Louvre, Orsay, Orangerie ...
I still have a lot to learn ...
Finally, only in 2008, in Toulouse, in the course of my work, I could be a bit near the stars ...
