Artist Profile

Selma Prado

Bio / Description

A passion discovered early in school in Brazil, craftsmanship has been a permanent learning process. I started giving classes about oil and acrylic painting when I was 15 years old. After college, I became a teacher for children with hearing disabilities, it is the same condition that I have faced since infancy. The process is convincing the children to accept the challenge of learning new skills to the boost of self-stem when they realized the first results was an awesome experience. Today, painting is how I keep challenging myself. This universe of details where each trace matters. I’m self-taught. My work includes painting on canvas, aluminum, glass, crafts and fabric using oil, alcohol ink or acrylic.
