Use various techniques doing a mix of material. The composition suffers the influence of the materials of the moment of creation and of the emotional. The collages I provide a more intimate perception of the world. I use in my work the dry Pastel, the Nanjing, Acrylic paint and even oil paint.··.

I haven't had much encouragement during my life, but currently two people really encouraged me to continue producing. One is my daughter, Cristiane Bornacina and the other is a friend of Sueli de Andrade.
