Lavras da Mangabeira, Brazil, 1996.
Lives and works in Juazeiro do Norte, Brazil.

PIPA Prize 2022 nominee.

Artist/Educator/Researcher. Graduated in Visual Arts from Universidade Regional do Cariri (2019), Co-leader of the Novos Ziriguiduns (Inter)Nacionais Gerados na Arte-NZINGA/CNPq Research Group.

She develops artistic works based on the science of the forest, as a black woman, migrant from the northeast of Brazil, tracing paths based on historiographical gaps, affective constructions and personal/collective memories. Evoking the ancestral force of life in the countryside, she finds in the experiences on earth the path that guides her artistic work as a migrant farmer artist, fertilizing images.
