I am a painter, outdoors man, YouTuber and proud member of "The Cloud Appreciation Society", a society devoted to cloud lovers. I was born in Portugal, then moved around this world quite a bit, currently residing in Sweden where my studio is located.
On this website you will find:
- Some of my work for sale
- Free basic painting lessons for those that want to "give it a go"
- Films of my wilderness adventures on pleinair painting and bushcraft
- And sometimes, a wilderness painting workshop with me in person. Those are rare, so make sure to subscribe to the newsletter to stay on top of it.
I am mostly active and engaged with viewers on YouTube and Instagram. You can connect with me and say hi on the social media links below:
BA, Illustration and Fine Art at Swansea’s Institute of Higher Education, University of Wales - UK
Note: I did not learn how to paint in college since representational art and traditional skills were frowned upon by art teachers at the time.
I didn't feel like throwing paint in a canvas to "express my emotions", nor felt like creating useless contraptions to be displayed as "art " in an installation. Hence why I studied traditional illustration instead.
So when it comes to painting skills, I am mostly self taught.
