Nature is my playground, source of inspiration and connection with spirit.
Born and raised in Brazil, I was introduced to nature in a gentle and inviting way by my father and spent most of my free time enjoying the beach or the mountains around Rio de Janeiro. Living in the Sierra foothills near Yosemite National Park now for over 20 years, I feel very connected to the natural environment around me and I commune with it daily, by walking, hiking, dipping in the creek and photographing.
I am attracted to subjects that offer me interesting light, color and patterns to play with in macro. I love exploring the process of creating abstract images of nature. I wish to awaken the viewers’ curiosity and stimulate their imagination. Abstract photography opens possibilities and allows for a new way of seeing.
