Ana Isabel Amaro was born on the 13th March 1964 in Sagres, Algarve (Portugal). She began her studies at Escola Secundária Gil Vicente in Lagos and later graduated in Banking Management from ISGB-Instituto Superior de Gestão Bancária-Lisboa. Between the years of 1983 and 2020, she made a career in banking, working as a branch manager for the last 13 years. She lives in the municipality of Loulé and has recently started her venture as a self-taught painting artist, using acrylic paint as the main technique. All of her paintings are created in a very intuitive way and she likes to believe that they are a form of visual art that captures the expression of ideas, feelings and emotions. Ana Isabel uses the elements of shape, colors, line and tones in unique ways to produce paintings that convey sensations of movement, transparency, depth and light.
