Pablo Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Capturing the inner essence and joy of childlike
wonder and curiosity, Marcela Carvalho’s mixed media paintings convey the sentimental beauty of the deep heart’s core. Bringing enormous passion
and spontaneity to her art, Carvalho shares the elemental force of honest naiveté with her audience by combining outstanding technical ability with
imaginative inspiration. The award-winning artist was born in Brazil. Aside from her success as a fine artist, Ms. Carvalho is also a composer, published author and illustrator. She exhibits her artwork internationally in group and solo exhibitions. See more at marcelacarvalho.com and sewingtheroses.org.
