Pintia is a pre-roman arqueologic site, in Spain, not far from Valladolid. The people that lived there, for many generations were the Vacceos, and, soon after, the Romans. 22oo years latter, a group of Portuguese friends have been there, having a wonderful time, filled with laughter and happiness. Textiles were an important aspect of the Vacceos´s everyday life, and I had the opportunity of photographing some artifacts. You can see the photos in this blog - Traditional Portuguese Spindle - where I intend to be posting textile tools with "history".
Criar é dizer algo. É uma necessidade íntima tão forte como beber ou comer.
Ver, é como respirar e fazer é dar forma para que seja visto.
Crio via pintura, texteis ou modelagem...e ser artista é mesmo a melhor maneira de se viver nesta vida.
Bio: Although I was trained as a painter, my curiosity and creativity spread within different artistic scopes, as well as a painting. I painted professionaly for several years. Animated cinema was a love that years later I could experiment with computers. This led to an M.A qualification. But my long lasting love is textiles. Mum taught me textitle production as a teenager. I seem to be traveling full cicle.
