"I am a painter of people, animals and the natural world. I strive in my painting to reveal the unique essence of each of my subjects through the distillation of light and color into recognizable form and substance. I continue to be greatly influenced by my uncle, Cuban Vanguardia painter Antonio Gattorno. He was known for his versatility and his ability to paint masterfully in a variety of styles. I am constantly experimenting with styles and developing my sense of versatility."
Ms. Cabral grew up on the shores of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA. She began drawing and painting at the age of ten. She won several first place awards in elementary and high school art exhibits that featured her portraits of family and friends.
After working for years with her life partner, Séan Poole, on the biography and life works of her uncle, Cuban Master Painter, Antonio Gattorno, she found a renewed zest for painting. Her paintings have sold through the Internet,in Miami, FL, and in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Ms. Cabral participated in an International Artists Workshop in Chania, Crete in October 2002, where several artists from the US, India, and Europe came together to paint, enjoy each others company and share their works. It culminated in an exhibition of all the works.
Two of her paintings were exhibited in Ferrara, Italy in an exhibit titled "The Four Elements" - International Visual & Contemporary Art Exhibition October 25 - November 2, 2003.
She continues to paint on commission in her studios in North Myrtle Beach, SC.
