Lygia was born in Rio de Janeiro and educated in Niteroi, RJ-Brasil and came to Australia in 2006, living in Perth Hills, WA.
Lygia's background is in Librarianship and later in Holistic Therapy and Active Meditation.
She is a self-taught artist always using her natural artistic abilities to draw, to paint acrylic on canvas, watercolour and the use of charcoal to create her artworks what she has done since a teenager.
In 2008 Lygia makes a decision to dedicate more of her time to her creativity practice and created Made 4 You.
In July 2009 she had her first professional class she attended here in Australia. She learnt the printmaking techniques using collagraph print which she now develops with great success!
Through her work, playing with colours and textures, Lygia expresses her passion for the beautiful, colourful and cheerful nature around ... birds, flowers, trees and her strong connection with music gives her a lot of inspiration to create a new print.
She also loves drawing Mandalas! :)
She loves to choose some sweet message or proverb which reflects a meaning that exists in every print and gives them more embellishments.
Each work she finishes she feels gratitude and joy. :)
Lygia has been participating in arts exhibition through Art Galleries such as Moores Building, Printmakers Association WA, Midland Junction Arts Centre and Army Art Exhibition.
She also has artworks at Artisan Store Fremantle, Herb Circle, Mundaring Art Centre, Victoria Park Centre of the Arts and she has displayed to markets such as 3 in 1 Market, Kalamunda Artisan Markets, Made on the Left, Perth Makers Markets, Perth Upmarket, Artisan Collective, QV1 Christmas Market, The Vintage Colletctive.
