Ivone de Fátima Camargo Vicentini.
Granddaughter and daughter of farmers, Fatima Camargo was born and raised in rural Santa Cruz do Rio Pardo-São Paulo. Married and mother of three children, always worked in the cultivation of seeds and vegetables.
In 2007 entered in a strong frame of depression due to personal problems, daily pressures and stress. No longer able to work and I don't feel the same. Changed doctors changed his medication and Fatima wasn't coming back to reality; his days were spent in a past in which there were no fond memories. One day, faced with huge sadness of their children, asked God knee that you return the pleasure for life. The request has been granted; began to be born in your inner desire for art!
In October 2014, He began writing poems!
What inspires me is all I want the world, all the best, who live in the Union, because it is the only way to peace! -Fatima Camargo
Where did you born?
Santa Cruz do Rio Pardo / SP, in the countryside.
How and when you give your first contact with the Arts?
I believe by the hands of God, because I asked him to give me something that was my!
How did you find this gift?
Suddenly shortly after I have asked God to give me the pleasure for life, because I was depressed and had no more sense to me!
What are your main influences?
The search for peace was the influence, because I was living in the past, things that hurt me, that have been piling up and there was no more room for the beautiful and good things in my life. Actually I live at war with myself!
What materials do you use in your works?
Fabric, oil paint, brushes, kerosene for washing brushes and cotton cloth to clean the brushes. Do not use a plastic fiber use palette involved with plastic bag. Every work!
My process is fast. Make a stub and finish on paint!
What inspires me is all I want the world, all the best, who live in the Union, because it is the only way to peace! And also my world where I live!
When you started effectively to produce or create your works?
Started in July 2010! I started with flowers and landscapes!
Art is an intellectual production exquisite, where emotions are embedded in the context of creation, but in art history, we see that many artists are derived from other, following technical and artistic movements through time, you own any model or influence of any artist? Who would be?
Not! I'm self-taught know little of art! My art was a blessing I received! And I am following my path!
What does art mean to you? If you were to summarize in a few words the meaning of Arts in your life…
Gave me the pleasure for life! Today I see the world with joy, because the painting helped me forget my past that took my present! Gladdened me!
What techniques do you use to express their ideas, feelings and perceptions about the world? (Whether it is through painting, sculpture, drawing, collage, photography… or uses several techniques in order to make a mix of different art forms).
There is no technique in my paintings, they are naive, arise spontaneously, No teaching! Only my! Primitive or Naïve.
Every artist has his mentor, that person whom you mirrored that encouraged and inspired you to follow this career you, going ahead and taking your dreams the other expression levels, who this person is and how it introduced you in the art world?
After my first exhibition in my city, a plastic artist, Pliny Ringhon, also my city, see my works and came to my house and told me that I should follow, because my paintings were Naif, a painting and I should never stop! It gave me the strength to be able to be on my way.
You have another activity beyond art? You give lessons, lectures etc.?
I'm a farmer always worked in greenhouses, only stopped because of depression! I couldn't do my job!

Your plans for the future.
I plan to Paint a lot on the subject of Peace and lead to the world what I think what I wish for the world, Let recorded through my art that we can change and turn grief into joy!
I would love to let the world the story that inspired me to paint about depression, A true story based on the life of my grandmother!
My first painting of figures reminded me of the tragic story that took her to have depression, more than 50 ago!
I created the picture in 2011 "The Angel Of Hope!”.
The Angel Of Hope
Based on a true story, in the life of Sebastiana Maria de Jesus Rodrigues!
Sebastiana loses his eldest son, Aristaeus, who dies electrocuted, at the age of 14 years old.
Turned off, Sebastiana enters a depression, leaving even taking care of their minor children.
Nothing else mattered, lived her days crying.
In one night, While reposed, Aristaeus appears in your dreams, and ask mom to stop crying, because their tears encharcavam your wings, and he couldn't fly.
The next day Sebastiana, account the dream family and said we weren't going to cry.
Story told by, Neusa Maria Rodrigues de Camargo, daughter of Sebastiana, sister of Aristeas, My Mother, at the time with only 7 years, remember all.
I never knew my grandmother, She passed away 2 days before my birth, cancer victim.
This was my first table of figures, I thought about painting something about depression, I remember this sad story, I decided to paint, It wasn't easy, But God helped Me after ready the work I understood that God wanted to show me, that my problems were small, on. This, and many others.
This time I took 5 Antidepressants, and 2 sleeping pills, in 2010!
Today I take only 1.
