Artist: Maria Luisa Persson, Sweden.
She was born 1945 and raised in the small town of Palmeira dos Indios in the inland of the northeastern part of Brazil. Not many people in her hometown supported her. Contrary actually.
as the stubborn person she was she didn´t become discouraged and already in the age of 22 she had her first individual exhibition, After that she was invited three times to Teatro Deodoro, a combination of theater and art gallery in
Maceio, the capital of the state of Alagoas. Art experts saw in the young and self-taught artist a great talent.
Her paintings at that time were mostly influenced by the environment in which she lived; such as drought, barren
land and poverty, but also the good things that can brighten up the most miserable life situtations. But since then she has changed technique and style. However in many of her works one can still imagine the shades from home.
Luisa lives no longer in Brazil. After marriage she moved with her husband to Sweden 1973. There she has continued to paint, but also in about 15 years taught painting within various educational associations.
Maria Luisa has participated
in about 60 exhibitions, mostly in Sweden but even in some other countries.,
