About Paula L


Art Prints


My name is Paula Ludovino and my story in art started in 2010. I live in Vila Nova de Milfontes, a small touristic village in the south of Portugal and worked in local bars till almost 40 (three years ago) when I decided it was enough. I wanted change in my life but didn't have a clue about what I could, or even desired, to do.
That same summer a friend, who was taking a drawing workshop, came to spend holidays at my house. She was always sketching …. Never, till that moment, I felt the slightest interest about any art. But there I was, fascinated with her sketches! She noticed my interest and left me some pencils and stumps. That was the beginning of a wonderful and unexpected Passion.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I finished my first drawing! How could that be possible?? Till then I thought I couldn't even draw a proper stick figure...! But that looked so real!! It seemed like a Miracle! It was as if God was talking to me!! I felt it as such a precious gift that I promised myself (and God) that I wouldn’t let it go and would do everything to show my appreciation!
I spent months sketching and researching the internet for all the free information i could get. In that process I tried oil painting and found another and even greater Passion and, with it, a purpose for my life!
And here I am, learning on my own, drawing and painting! I had my first exhibition in last April. So far I managed to sell three paintings and some graphite portraits (commissions).
I don’t know what the future will bring me but I know one thing for sure – nothing ever felt so right and I never felt so alive!

O meu nome é Paula Ludovino e a minha história nas artes plásticas começou em 2010. Vivo em Vila Nova de Milfontes, uma pequena vila turística no sul de Portugal, e trabalhei a maior parte da vida em bares locais. Até que, com quase 40 anos decidi que bastava. Queria mudança na minha vida mas não tinha a menor idéia do que poderia, ou mesmo do que desejava, fazer.
Nesse mesmo verão uma amiga, que estava a fazer um workshop de desenho, veio passar férias a minha casa. Ela estava sempre a desenhar e a fazer esboços.... Nunca, até aquele momento, senti o menor interesse por nenhuma Arte. Mas ali estava eu, fascinada com os seus esboços! Ela notou o meu intresse e deixou-me uns lápis e esfuminhos. Esse foi o príncipio de uma maravilhosa e inesperada Paixão.
Eu nem podia acreditar nos meu olhos quando acabei o meu primeiro desenho! Como era possível ?? Até então eu pensava que nem conseguia desenhar uma linha direita...! Mas o desenho estava tão real !! Parecia um Milagre! Era como se Deus estivesse a falar comigo!! Senti-o como um presente tão precioso que prometi a mim mesma (e a Deus) que não o iria deixar passar e iria fazer tudo para mostar a minha gratidão!
Passei meses a desenhar e a investigar na internet toda a informação gratuita que conseguia descobrir. Durante esse processo tentei a pintura a óleo e descobri uma Paixão ainda maior e, com isso, um propósito para a minha vida!
E aqui estou eu, a aprender e a investigar por conta própria, a desenhar e a pintar! Fiz a minha primeira exposição no passado mês de Abril e até agora já vendi três quadros e alguns retratos a grafite (por encomenda).
Não sei o que o futuro me reserva mas de uma coisa estou segura – pela primeira vez sinto que estou a fazer a coisa certa e nunca me senti tão viva!
