Geiza Barreto is a Brazilian contemporary artist who uses painting to search for balance and express her duality - the logical and the emotional, the rational and the intuitive, science and faith, sadness and joy, shadow and light, strength and fragility. Before dedicating herself to art in 2016, Barreto spent two decades working in the IT industry.
