Meet the correspondents: LISBON > Maria Lopes
"I'm Maria from Lisbon, Portugal. I'm a designer and public school teacher. Sometimes I work in the capital and other times in small towns in the provinces. Drawing has always been part of my life since early childhood. There were phases in which I drew a lot and others when I did not draw anything. Currently, I am fortunate to draw almost daily.
I favor a design that is worth more than a thousand words. I specially like to draw
mechanisms, organic and industrial .... the human figure; machinery and urban landscapes."
