Artist Bio: I was born in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro (1961), and I have liked color, painting and learning anything and everything about art ever since I was a child. I used to go to my grandmother's house and tried to all kinds of materials to explore the fascinating world of creativity. I moved to Europe and lived in Germany and Belgium for around 10 years where I discovered the universe of glass.
In Belgium, studied Arts at the Ecole des Arts Braine L'Alleud (2003-2006), where I started to experiment with glass. In Belgium, I entered in competitions using my work in glass, winning first prize at the Concours International Arts Plastiques at the European Academy of Arts in both 2005 and 2006.
In August 2006, my family (my husband and two boys), moved to Atlanta, where I had the opportunity to meet great glass artists, and improve my knowledge. Like my life, the universe of glass is like an exciting adventure, full of surprises and limitless.
I took some time to get adapted to the new life, in a new country, United States, and in the meantime, I started to build my dream studio.
In 2015, I started a family business selling my Jewelry in Brazil and the name of the company is "Atrevidro".
