I'm Beatriz Mendonça, too. and I'm a brazilian artist. The art, especially painting, was always present in my life, and I graduated from college of arts São Paulo, still very young. I have painted since then continuously trying to build a relevant work, with content and interest. Recently discovered and developed techniques of digital painting, which has aroused my interest for the new aesthetic possibilities that technology can offer, and this has been very rewarding. The photo is also part of these possibilities, and it has been common to merge the two arts, painting and digital photography, with new and surprising results.
