I have a degree in biology and teach in a portuguese high-school. I´m a self tought painter (mostly oil), have exhibited in Portugal, Holand, UK and the USA (S Francisco). Three of my paintings were published on the May 09 issue of russian Esquire magazine, to illustrate an article asout the american astronaut Sandra Magnus.
Many years from now, my paintings will probabily have the fate of ninetysomething per cent of all artwork done by amateurs (and probabily eightysomething per cent of artwork done by professionals): car booth sales or some dusty second hand store... I would like to think that, in those circumstances, people passing by some of my old dusty paintings will stop, give a second glance, and wonder who painted that?
