I was born in Angola. I started drawing in the sand when I was five years old; no one had ever shown me how to draw. During the school day, my teachers would get angry that I would draw during our lessons. At 12, in my family’s house, I once drew and painted on some wooden pieces, Everyone who saw them was surprised, and asked to have one.
In 2007, an experienced French artist, Miss Danielle Vasa, who studied at the prestigious French university of arts, les beaux arts de Paris, saw one of my paintings in Switzerland and was very impressed… but still saw that something was lacking. She thus, proposed to teach me the technicalities of paint. A year later, she found I was qualified to exhibit and at this point asked me to exhibit with her in a group exhibition. Since then, I have exhibited my work around the world.
