Why Visual Communication

How boredom boost my creativity


WHY I WORK IN VISUAL COMMUNICATION

My youth was passed in a little village of Portugal. I was the typical introspective child.
School, catechism and scouting were my leisure activities. No cinema. No theatre. No whatever. From school and catechism I enjoyed the socializing, and from scouting, true to be told, I didn't like anything.
 

At the age of 11 I started cutting images from magazines and newspapers  and this was the first moment of my story. It was the beginning of my life path and career - a visual artist.
 

I was communicating through collage, even if I didn't know at that time.
This drive has also released a new brand future for me:  those magazines were educating me about the different lifes and cultures, new people and faces. I fell in love with that.

Years later

... boredom made me move from Aveiro to Dili in East Timor, and in 2012 from Lisbon to São Paulo, and from São Paulo to a solo travel in.
After I returned to that small village and spent two years rebuilding my personal and professional life.

 

In 2015 I moved again to Lisboa and I focused my strengths to do what I love most and believe to be my gift: creating stories and emotions on visual format - visual communication.

Boredom and fear are two feelings that can work positively to expand our awareness and experience in life. It is what as been happening to me.
I am very grateful for being so stuck and bored during my teenage days, it had boost my creativity and adult life's choices.
