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.
... 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.
