Welcome! “Sejam muito bem-vindos” it means be very welcome in Portuguese (Brazilian). Hi, I am Amàlia Ferreira-Espinoza. My first name is pronounced ah-MAH-lee-ah for those of you wondering. I was born in the vibrant country called Brazil, however I grew up in beautiful Canada. I currently reside in the city of Toronto, Ontario with my handsome husband who I love and adore dearly.
One of my favourite quotes is “PASSION IS THE GENESIS OF GENIUS”. I am a very passionate person that is why still life photography has always been part of my life, including my husband of course. AFE Images is my brand which has the backing of my initials. Looking passed the brand then you’ll get to know the soft and always positive person I am. For me making art is like the gateway to my most inner feelings. My hopes and dreams are to insure that the art I create is just what you need to make your life more beautiful.
Black with one sugar, yes, that is exactly what you will hear me uttering all over the various coffee shops here in Toronto. I consume way too much of this delicious beverage. I blame all of this on the fact that I’m a Brazilian, just like soccer coffee is in our blood. Whoa wait!!! I have an acquired taste for English Breakfast and Earl Grey tea, I have my paternal grandmother to thank for that. The aroma of my grannies black tea served with day old baguette bread, sliced and toasted in the oven. Mmmm deliciously tasty.
Ah summer! My favourite season of course. Everything just comes alive, people are out and about in the parks, beaches and restaurants. The city just becomes a hub of activities, and the spirit that brings is exactly what I crave each year.
I hope you know me a little better now, from now on my art will be my voice.
