When all begin to reach to your home...Atelier Expo Arte

Just some pictures to show you where and how my pieces are made....

This takes place in a small town in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal.
All my pieces are handmade as you can see.
First of all, I start to choose the themes for my pieces.
Something about history, art, inspires me...
I read and read about the theme. If it's a person I read and study her past.

Than I write a short biography to attach in the description of my item.

Now it's time to start my artwork with the images.

The images features my original design and artwork.
You can find some similar but not equal...if it's sign by Atelier Expo Arte...
I find in the market the best materials.

I must say I spend a lot of time chosing my materials. I like all to be much perfect as I can. Tissue, canvas, foam, ink, etc...

Than it's time to print the artwork in a big magine...

Now we need to cut and made a portrait, a pillow, a bag, a folding screen, etc

When it's ready it's time to sign my work. All pieces are signed by me.

Now it's time to enjoy one of the best moments: Look and enjoy the beauty of the piece...and celebrate with the people who turns this work possible for me.

Ready to take some pictures! I get the digital camera and took the photos.

Sometimes I get the help from a photographer friend.

The images at my store must be at least so beautifull as I find my items are.

It's the most dificult and hard part of this work.

And now they are ready to reach your home, after package very carefully.

What do you think? - Vá lá, a vossa opinião é importante!

Tradução do texto para Português abaixo.
I'm just wondering what do you think about the theme of this pillow.
For me is very important your opinion...
I just do what I do because I love art and, of course, it has only meaning for me if you like what I do.
So, first of all, I appologize for this late post...
I'm been too busy with my new collection.
Let´s now talk about this thematic Pillow: CAMÕES
Camões was the biggest Portuguese poet and one of the most famous in the world history.
Borned in 1524. He traveled to the orient in a small boat to Goa and Macau to study the people culture and their history.
Wrote "Os Lusiadas".
So i'm waiting for your comments.
Do you like this pillow?
De volta e a dar-vos notícias.
Estou a preparar a minha nova colecção. Gostaria de saber qual a vossa opinião sobre o que pensam desta almofada impressa com a imagem do Camões.
Gostariam de a ter em vossa casa?
Eu acho-a adoravél. Combina simplicidade, grandeza, modernidade, historia. As suas cores permitem uma decoração com quase todo o tipo de cores.
Mas, claro, eu sou suspeita.
Quero é a vossa opinião...
