"The earth element is my great inspiration. "


Isabel de Sousa

Throughout her illustrious career, Isabel has been recognized for her exceptional contributions to the world of art. Her portfolio includes a rich tapestry of individual and collective exhibitions that have spanned across various countries. Her artwork has found its way into both private and public collections, cementing her reputation as a revered artist.
