degree in Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Porto University.
She studied with an Erasmus scholarship at the National Academy of Art in
Sofia, Bulgaria, where the confrontation with eastern territories with
rather closed mentalities (pre - EU entrance) inspired her visual and

metaphorical relation with psychological boundaries.

Festival (FLUP), 'PECA (IN)CONCRETA' at Ciclo Vinte e Sete Sentidos
(Culturgest, Lisbon).
