Men of honour

 Hello world…I have been very quiet in the the net these last months. I traveled to India to Easter islands and those trips were quite remarquable and fulfilling. I needed time out of the studio recharging the batteries searching questioning myself…a lot! What it is that i create? What is the purpose? One of my clients told me recently that my art comes from the heart and it makes him feel connected with his beloved when he offered her one of my albums. It was an unique and special gift one that she will remembered and treasured. I felt quite empowered. How priceless is that for an artist? Tears come to my eyes and…THANK YOU was my answer.  THANK YOU for the trust THANK YOU for the feedback THANK YOU for the connection HAVE FUN ENJOY XOXOXO

When a man loves a woman…

                                                                 Latest album ordered by a beautiful woman for her wedding. At first the album was her special heart gift for her husband to be but i sense when creating why not make it a surprise for them both? So they had their wedding in the midst of the forest(how cool is that?) along with their three children, family and friendsand in the next morning they opened the album which celebrates their mutual love. Here is just a glimpse of it of course as the fotos are private… Hope you enjoy it. Have a nice week end xo

Momento Mágico…

Recebi este mail lindo e queria partihar. (Sorry for those who don’t speak portuguese, received this magic mail from a client and was touched to tears. Beautiful written…someone with a true soul) Olá Alexandra!Conheci o seu trabalho há uns dois anos através do seu marido.Explico-lhe como se passou:Era Dezembro e fazia frio. Andava a divagar pelo Chiado aquele sitio que nao esquecemos pela luz e vida incrível, aquele lugar que nos trás algumas lembranças e memórias de infância, aquele Chiado que está sempre diferente a cada momento, que nos transporta para fora de nós e nos faz sentir livres por sermos quem somos.Andava a divagar depois de uma fim de semana romântico em que celebrávamos,como sempre, os anos do S, deambulava pelas ruas olhando para tudo e para nada.Mas de repente parei porque nao consegui andar mais.Parei numa pequena banca com coisas lindas, cheias de história e histórias. Fiquei vidrada.Reparei que pertencia a um Homem com ar distinto e afável e por isso perguntei:“É o senhor que faz?”Ao que me respondeu com um sorriso eterno nos olhos: “Nao, é a minha …

Make a wish…

I love the idea of recycling and have been doing some visual journals for some time now. The difficult part i often hear is where to start? I came up with this idea after many requests, to put some of my stuff into the journals and then the buyer will continue and make it her/his own. I forgot to take the pictures of those i already sold but i still have one left for the moment so here it goes!  The goal of the journal is to have fun! Feel free to scribble, draw, paint, glue, cut, write….unlimited list. I love the idea of a magic journal where one can write down and collage our dreams and projects and feel confident that it will happen in the future. I wish i have a… I wish i am… I wish i can… BE INSPIRED HAVE FUN MAKE A WISH BE HAPPY BE BLESSED XO

About Hope…

 It seems that i have only questions without answers those days. In this moment of huge crise in Portugal what can we do to help one another, to give support, to listen and still be positive? The state is cutting everywhere, people struggle to remain afloat but it becomes more and more challenging each day to just survive. Some go to the beach to regain energy, i do whenever i can but i like to gather  down my thoughts, my dreams in my “make a wish journals”too. I follow Julia Cameron’s advice( the vein of gold, a journey to your creative heart) to write down every single day with no exception 3 pages who will help you to become more centered, balanced and alert. Easy to say when it seems there is no way out, when you found only close doors ahead of you. No need to reply doors will open one day, have to be patient blabla bla… And ye,t you soon realise that human beings have unlimited resources within them after moments of complete despair HOPE arise again …

Thank you

I am really excited about Katie Kendrick online class. She’s so inspiring and talented. It’s like i have been waiting all these years the green light…and off i go. I have been in my studio with my hands full of paint and watercolors crayons feeling alive. I don’t know where i’m going but i definitely sense that a new and exciting path is ahead. i like to doubt i like to try i like to question i like to explore i like…myself each day a little bit more Make something bold this week xo
