De Dentro Para Fora com Graça Paz

From the Inside Out with Graça Paz

I'm a woman in my 50s, artist who lives in a village in the north of Portugal after 45 years living in my hometown of Porto. I'm passionate about color, books, plants, comfort, discipline, organization, studying and rural life. I'm intense, very resilient and thoughtful (characteristics that at first I mistakenly called... slow!!). I love silence and solitude when properly balanced. I'm tall, and I have lots of freckles!

Who and what inspires you? Women artists who spend their lives quietly doing their work and are discovered at 80 are always very inspiring stories. Constantly learning.

What do you still have to create? Building a house of my own (I've already built a double).

How to stay creative Never stop going to the studio, but also moments of quiet and emptiness.
