My primary and secondary studies took place in Belgium, the country where I lived.
Returned to Portugal, I attended the Graphic Design course at IADE-Institute of Art and Interior Design, followed by a Secretarial course.
Professionally, I joined the French luxury food group, Hédiard, in the context of stores décor and creating packaging and “corbeilles”, first in Paris and then in the branch at Lisbon.
As an assistant interpreter, I participated in different international and European Union meetings, which took place in Lisbon.
As painting was my first vocation, I attended different painting courses and I continue to exercise this activity assiduously.
