Maria Beatitude has her roots in the north of Portugal where she lives and works. With a professional background and career linked to the graphic arts and textiles, the jump to painting was the realization of a long-sought project. With differentiating approaches her works reflect sensitivity but also determination and irreverence.

Maybe it's because she grew up in a matriarchal family, because she heard stories and lived evidences .... “LUZ E SOMBRA” is strongly enunciated by resilient women, mysterious women, with veiled stories, protected by the shadow and revealed by the light. Narratives of blurred details where emotion is felt by the expressiveness of the stroke.
