“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist when he grows up,” declared Pablo Picasso. Capturing the inner essence and joy of a child with wonder and curiosity, Marcela Carvalho’s mixed media paintings convey the sentimental beauty of the core of the deep heart. Bringing enormous passion and spontaneity to her art, Marcela Carvalho shares the elemental strength of honest ingenuity with her audience through the combination of excellent technical ability with creative inspiration to honor the intelligence, beauty and admirable strength of women who live in contemporary society.” _Ruthie Tucker, Amsterdam Whitney Executive Director Curator
