I'm super mega late with the correspondence.
Sorry for that!
As a child, I was contemplative. Liked to draw, but liked even more coloring. In my early teens, I had to do work for school on gems, precious stones and it fell to myself the Turmaline. I was bewitched by its wide spectrum of colors and, one thing leading to another, I extended my interest to all other stones, which was easy, because Brazil is the largest Gemological Province in the world. Few years later, also in school, I made another great personal discovery: Optical Physics. It took me to another levels, even the most ethereal, like Chromotherapy.
Beyond heavens and the depths of the Earth, any manifestation of colors attract me, any study in colors, interest me. Because of colors I became a gemologist, jewel designer, goldsmith and enamellist (I graduated in Law, but never took the profession). Through my studies on colors, I got an interest in Ancient Civilizations, Morals, Philosophy, Architecture, Botanics and Birds, among others. I worked also for the fashion industry and dealt with food, actually, fruit flavored ice-cream, coming out of a small factory and being sold at a store with a long and deliciously colored counter.
The color is beautiful even when it is absent, which I think it is just a means of making space to other colors so that we can equally admire them. Colors are my companions and I learned with them that stones do indeed have life and people also have colors.
I adore Colourlovers. It is a great addictive ideia.
