artist and jewelry designer in Matosinhos, Portugal
Cacilda Espíndola was born somewhere in the heat of the mid-west of Brazil and moved to São Paulo while still a child.
Started travelling since she was very young, which would make a big impact on her artistic path, specially on the experiences and changes that those trips would promote in herself.
The artistic expressions are with her since young, starting at 5 with dance and only leaving it behind for a bigger passion - painting. At 9 she joined painting classes, where she met all kinds of painting styles with different types of materials. As an answer to some challenges of the classes she felt the need to create her own paints. Since then she has been dedicated on painting, going through many schools, workshops and master classes. She began exhibiting her work in 1996, some were individuals other were collective, being awarded in some of them.
But her life changes when she comes to Portugal as tourist, after losing her husband. She fell in love with the country, his culture and his filigree. At 2007 she moves to Portugal definitely, where she studies jewelry.
Through painting, installation art, eco-design and jewelry she has sought to show her path by using abstraction as a form of artistic expression.
