I find it particularly enjoyable when artwork
conveys an emotional response from the viewer. A film, painting or drawing
should engage the audience to think of an idea, a feeling, or
the unlimited possibilities that we as individuals or as a society have.
I am presently working on developing my own style in both traditional
and digital media, and searching for my voice in my artwork.
My paintings have been in shown in Toronto and Mississauga. My two short animated
films “Shadows on the Wall” and “Dare to Dream” have been to Festivals in Canada and US.
“Shadows on the Wall” was
nominated for Best First Animated Short at the Animazing Spotlight Festival.
In 2009, I finished a BAA in Animation with
Honours from Sheridan College. Previously, I graduated from U of Lisbon with a BA
in Geography, and from U of Toronto with a M.Sc.in Planning.
Presently, I am the sole proprietor of MAAD
Productions, a member of Visual Arts
Mississauga, Raindance Canada, TIFF, LIFT and I am an organizing member of the
Figurative Expressions Group.
