Nickname: Cristina Mateus
Country: Portugal - Role: Artist
FabrianoInAcquarello 2023 Artist

I was born in Canada, 1972, live in Portugal since childhood.

Studied ceramic arts, area that i work at til present. That took me to other art techniques, like watercolor, that i left no more.

My main subject is figurative, daily scenes, mostly influenced by my home town, a beach village. And i try to do it with loose and simple stokes, focusing on light.

In the last years i've been participating at National and International Watercolor Exibitions and Events regurarly.

Participating..learning..and meeting artists from around the world is enriching!


" To my mind, a painting should be something pleasant, cheerful, and pretty! There are too many unpleasant things in life as it is without creating still more of them." - Pierre-Auguste Renoir
