About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour."

ABOUT ME

A-Hoy!!! My name is Nadine, i'm 22 years old and I like to consider myself as an artist. Born in Johannesburg(S.A), then moved to Caldas da Rainha(PT), then to Coimbra(PT), where i'm currently staying.
I'm planning this trip to Europe to explore new possibilities and experiences. Who knows where i shall be in the future.. :)
As an artist, I'm interested in the definition and sense of place, and it's relation with identity and memory, experienced through time and space in different societies.

In general, i would say that i am an easy-going, outdoor, head in the clouds happy person. Meeting new people, new places and new cultures is definitely one of my favourite things to do, since it is an inspiration to my work.

PHILOSOPHY

"Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere." — Isabelle Eberhardt

"Happiness is only real when shared." — Christopher McCandless

“Tread softly,
Breathe peacefully,
Laugh hysterically.” — Nelson Mandela
