Eitiene Medeiros - Elas por Elas

I was approached by Mr. Roberto Graúna (Zé) to participate in a pre Olympics exhibition Elas Por Elas about 50 Brazilian women artists honouring 50 Brazilian women athletes. We came to a joint decision of who my muse was going to be, Etiene Medeiros a young upcoming super swimmer.

Also, as I love water, and everything about water. Being surrounded by immense majesty of the Atlantic Ocean, and the fresh water springs and water falls of Brazil I am the happiest I have been in a long time. I find being immersed in water and surrounded by water very calming, and the act of swimming as one of the best therapeutic activities. 

Etiene, is pure energy and passion and I see her as a goddess, as a dynamic being, as a champion.
