I believe I can create a business that I truly love, that is both profitable and makes a difference in the world. I want to make a difference, in my customers lives, and also being able to do charity helping the ones that are less fortunate that I am. 

I think it's such a blessing to be able to have a flexible time to work, and enjoy my kids growing! In the afternoon I'm a mom and I usually go back to the studio after they are in bed. I love music, dancing, talk to friends and family, cooking and exercising to relieve stress and keep healthy. I love the outdoors and nature and I envision my clients like me, spiritual, connected to Source energy, kind, loyal, searching for adventure in life, that love to travel and to make a difference in the world as well. Good hearted people!!

I start my day taking kids to school, then meditating and connecting to my "Source", God. I open emails and then I work in the studio until lunch time. I bless my tools and supplies and I try to put a lot of good vibes into my work so all my customers feel it in their homes. I "infuse" my ceramics with blessings and love. 

My daughters love that I'm a potter and they think I'm famous because I was featured in some blogs and magazines! They come and play with clay in my studio and they even have their own "gallerie display" at our home for their ceramics art! They help me when it's shipping day as well, cutting the bubble wrap.

I live in Phoenix, Arizona but I was born and raised in the southeast part of Brazil, south Atlantic Ocean. My grandparents were from Germany, Italy, Syria and Portugal and my parents always motivated us to travel to know this beautiful world, so I feel like I'm multicultural! 

With a background in Business and an MBA , I decided by the age of 40 that it was time to do what I love and be happy, so I pursued my ceramics hobby and turned it into my full time job. I use tropical plants to inspire me and even print them in my creations. I use a water melon, a rock or a squash sometimes as a mold for my bowls as well as texture from different continents.  I have a home studio and I feel very blessed to be able to work 20 steps away from my back door. My favorite color is turquoise and it's also the stone for Arizona, and I also love off-whites, grays and blues.

II also love knitting, taking photographs, cooking for friends and family, specially Brazilian and Italian food!

Love hiking the mountains around our area and during summer time in Flagstaff and Sedona. I recently rediscovered Yoga.

I chose to help Casa Brazil this year (ww.casabrazil.org), that helps needy children from the northeast or Brazil. It touches my heart. Living in the USA is hard to picture extreme poverty, where kids don't have enough to eat and don't have basic needs like water, clothing, shoes, food. It feels good inside knowing that a part of my profits goes to a great cause and helps make a like change in the world.
