I have always been passionate about creative activities. I trained in the visual arts and various craft activities. Since 5 years I specialized in vegetal paper and paper creations. I transform plants ,all kind of plants and especially invasive in beautiful paper. at the same time I am trying to preserve biodiversity especially in our special beautiful garden at the south east of sao Miguel. In this garden we cultivate a lot of different varieties:fruits,aromatics,medicinal,tropical and sub tropical,vegetables and flowers..... I love nature and arts.
