With her professional career going strong she has been feeding the desire to paint the multiethnic reality that she sees. Since 2004 she has been developing a series of portraits entitled "Natural Ethnography of the People of Rio de Janeiro."
Natural Ethnography of the People of Rio de Janeiro
A sensitive and contemporary story of the people of Rio, their occupations, their routine and their postures. The contrasting colors are a constant - blue, green, yellow and red - and don't define the ethnicity of its characters. The result is a feeling of joy, painting in a primitive art style brings the artist a feeling of closeness with the cultures that she is portraying.
