I was born in Estremoz (Portugal) in 1948.

I graduated in design from the Art University (ESBAL) in Lisbon in 1979.

Shortly after I started to work as a teacher and I dedicated myself intensively to my professional life.

I have been retired since 2005.

Ever since I started to dedicate myself to painting in a more systematic way.

In 2005 I also attended the school/workshop of the plastic artists – Zoran Smiljanic and Teresa Trigalhos.

In 2007 I started to take part in the group “Artefacto”, also with Zoran Smiljanic.

This group was created mainly to disseminate in a collective way all these plastic artist pieces.
