In 1983, I disconnected me from the company where he worked and moved to Foz do Iguaçu/PR, following the change of my husband for a new job. At this location, I did a painting course OST in local art Co-op, taught by artist Margaret Mary Camilotti Canul. Joining the passion for photography and inspired by the beautiful scenery of the place, I focused my paintings to portray landscapes. At that time, I have adopted the stage name URBANB, which keep until today.

The Impressionist artists, for freedom of expression, emphasis on themes of nature, mainly of landscapes, exploitation of contrasts and clarity of colors, highlighting the idea of happiness and harmony, and Claude Monet has always been my biggest inspiration for paintings.

Work with oil painting on canvas and digital art. The inks used are mostly brand Zecchi (Firenzi, Italy), Phoenix Arts, Black cat and Corfix. With respect to digital art, the works are first drawn on paper, are then redrawn with the use of mouse in graphic design software Adobe Illustrator for vector creation and graphic illustration. Printed on canvas or paper premium glossy jar 250 g with or without supporting white 5 mm foamboard.
What is your creative process itself? What inspires you?
For the screenshots, I use photographs in General, study the photos, drawing on the screen, and the paint flows. The photographs are always of landscapes that I photographed or are other people's photos, of sites that unfortunately never been present in body, but I'm sure I've been to soul. The inspiration for all this comes the moment I'm living, also influenced by the songs I hear.
Had 25 years when I painted the first screen, sold more than 45 screens for 5 countries, but it was only after graduation I decided to go back to producing and I enrolled in a contest in Uberlândia/MG, which resulted in the selection of my digital works for exhibition. It is worth noting that just as the screens, all digital works are unique, of my own and are not playable, provided with certificate of authenticity.
