I was born and raised in Portugal. In my mid thirties I moved to Canada with my husband and our three young children. I always had in interest in art and used to paint as a hobby. In Canada I started taking art classes, I was painting and doing life drawing. Photography was present in the background. Two years ago I lost a son. Through the grieving process I chose photography as a way of staying focused, connected and interested in the world around me. Street photography has been my focus since.
