Chica was born in Lisbon and studied Fine Art at Brighton University. She is interested in the way women have been depicted throughout art history and how our ideals of beauty have changed; from voluptuous fertility goddesses, to the perfectly proportioned Venus.
She relishes the relatively new phenomenon of being a woman painting women. She reinvents Classical figures in a unique style of her own - often contrasting the innocence and cheekiness, with sensual and often erotic poses. With their eyes often closed, her subjects evoke a dream-like state, caught somewhere between contented innocence and lustful ecstasy.
