Benedita is a busy mother of one small girl but she was kind enough to answer my questions.
My favourite pieces are a series of Portuguese farmers and animals. The people are wearing the traditional and regional dresses and you still meet people like them in the country side of Portugal where I have actually met many lovely people and animals. Benedita Feijó depicts those charming characters of the country beautifully and I think her drawings show a lot of wonderful Portguese-ness which I like very much.
Here is for more information about her work.
Benedita Feijó studied graphic design in England and she has made a wonderful series of products with her illustrations. I like her illustrations of Portuguese cities, country side and Portuguese traditional people. She uses a wonderful selection of colours on her canvases just like those you see in the Portuguese architecture and old houses. It looks like she put all the good colours of this country together in one piece, and that's how I was attracted by her works.
