"With my painting I try to capture and crystallize a specific moment, the emotional expression of a transcendent human experience; I use  the realistic representation of the human body and then I introduce it in an ethereal backdrop ...

This human is devoid of props, no matter the gender or age, it is timeless."


Sílvia Marieta

I was born in Lisbon in 1982.


Since early age, painting has played an important role in my life, always present, so that way I followed my academic studies in that direction, I graduated in Fine Arts, course of Painting at the University of Lisbon in 2006. After I acquire some more knowledge in short courses like scientific illustration, archaeological drawing, engraving, among others. Only in 2010, when I became a member of several Portuguese Associations of Artists, was when I started to be more present with my work at exhibitions, mostly collective, national and international ones.
