WANNA KNOW ABOUT ME?
Hi, I'm Thays (pronounced Ta-eese), but my clients and friends call me “Hot Mama." My nickname only begins to paint the picture of my spicy, energetic personality. I'm originally from Brazil, and I fell in love with art at the age of 3 when I first started coloring and drawing. I graduated from the School of Fine Arts of Sao Paolo at the age of 19 and then promptly moved to the USA to learn English. 15 years later, I own an art gallery and studio in sunny Ormond Beach, Florida. I took the town by storm, earning the Daytona Beach News Journal’s coveted ‘Top 40 under 40’ award, my first year in Ormond.
