With a deep-rooted commitment, I navigate the realms of artistry, education, and consultancy.

My expertise lies in the intricate narratives of Art History, progressive Teaching Methods, and the expansive world of mixed-media exploration, embracing the realms of Painting, Drawing, and Printmaking. 

Additionally, I take pride in serving as an IB Visual Arts coach, diligently supporting students in shaping their portfolios, refining studio work, and navigating the application process for tertiary-level art programs.

I am a self-taught professional  artist, and I specialise in the intricate realms of realistic drawing, dynamic comic panels, and captivating illustrations. My expertise extends across both charcoal drawing and an array of dry media. 

Embarking on this artistic journey, I am enthusiastic about sharing my creative process with you, guiding from the fundamental drawing basics to immersive, full-scale projects.

Within the spectrum of transdisciplinary visual artistry, I navigate the diverse landscapes of digital illustration, photography, conceptual design, and traditional media. 

My creative canvas knows no bounds. Yet, my purpose transcends mere aesthetics; it's a profound quest for self-reflection. Each stroke, pixel, and image weaves a tapestry that beckons introspection.

My creative journey centers around capturing intricate emotions and embodying the essence of personal expression. Whether in front of the camera or designing intricate pieces, my work is a tapestry of passion, where every stitch and pose tells a story of meticulous craftsmanship and boundless creativity.

As a multidisciplinary artist, I seamlessly blend my roles as a model and designer, driven by an unwavering commitment to detail and perfection.

I'm  serving as an Art and Teaching Assistant, along with the roles of snack provider and hug deliverer.

 I wholeheartedly embrace this remarkable journey with optimism, acknowledging its occasional challenges. Yet, the insights gained from both the children and colleagues have been invaluable.

Our Vision

The arts are a lens through which to approach the world: they not only have the power to reflect and represent the communities they occur in, but also to shape them.

For INNOVASTUDIO, the arts are not only defined by community, but also driven by the desire to make the dynamic, authentic narratives of Mozambique visible. 

We combine our knowledge and experience with curatorial practice, studio art and pedagogy to create programmes that offer opportunities for comprehensive, relevant and impactful skills-development in art making, art-appreciation, and academic response to art. 

At INNOVASTUDIO, we expect that art students will:

  • Cultivate skills;
  • Embark on creative exploration;
  • Participate in a collaborative exchange:
  • Commit to ongoing practice.

And INNOVASTUDIO will provide students with:

  • Problem solving;
  • Progress base learning;
  • Growth mindset;
  • Safe environment.
