About Ricardo Graham Ferreira : Woodworking arrived as a joyful activity to the life of this Brazilian artist, born in Rio de Janeiro. After graduating in Marketing and working a short time with it, Ricardo Graham made an important decision in his life and gave him self a chance to learn what he has loved since a little kid: woodworking. In 2002 he went to Italy. More precisely to the Brianza region. And there stayed for 3 years learning "ebanisteria" in Meda, "the city of furniture making". After that went to the south of France where he obtained a higher degree in woodworking, after one year attending the École Supérieure d'Ébénisterie d’Avignon, a prestigious school located in Provence. His workshop, known as “oEbanista”, was established in 2006, and it's located at Nova Friburgo, a city found on the green mountains of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Now, after 14 years of woodworking, Ricardo can say that what brought his work to light, was the love for the practice.
