Amelia was born and raised in Beira, Mozambique, Africa. She grew up with Chinese fairy tales and mythological stories, African drums, Indian chai and Portuguese cuisine. In school, she studied traditional Chinese calligraphy and painting, learned about western religion and Portuguese explorers.
After working in the heritage building conservation field for many years, she now lives, paints, draws and works on a beautiful farm in Pakenham, Ontario. Her work is inspired by her daily meanderings in nature.
