Ana Paula Graça Franco de Almeida was born on April 13, 1959 in Sintra, Portugal, graduating in Visual Arts at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of the Algarve. The following year, she achieved the Graduate Diploma in Visual and Performing Arts in the same institution. In an early age she showed a great aptitude in drawing, leading her to explore areas such as canvas painting, digital painting, sculpture, crafts, photography, video and design. Held many exhibitions of canvas painting, seeking to address different themes and concepts.
Great part of her work is related with the Contemporary Art, linking up in geometric abstraction. Her inspiration comes from the fascination with vivid colors, the brightness and transparency, creating the illusion of a journey where each line and its direction suggest movement, and where the plans, in a subtle three-dimensionality, induce the abstraction of our senses.
In a constant search for new techniques and seeking to tear with the conventional, she has been exploring new art forms centered on the use of recycled materials, giving a new dynamic to her artistic work.
Thus, it is possible to find a great diversity in her portfolio covering various artistic techniques.
