Cassia Lima Brazil
About the Artist
Cassia Lima has been painting for 20 years. Many of her paintings draw on memories of visiting her mother in the countryside outside Rio de Janeiro. There she observed many people working in agriculture and raising. She is self taught (in the naif tradition) and always wanted to be able to make a living independently and be her own boss. Her strong independent spirit and that of her fellow Brazilian women is reflected in many of her paintings as they play a strong role.
