Ruy likes to work on large canvases that draw you in and flood you with a feeling of contentment and well-being. This upbeat theme, found throughout his work, is achieved primarily by combinations of pastel color, loose brush strokes and an open use of light. The varying degrees of abstraction beckon viewers to become actively involved. The timeless pleasure derived from a Pereira canvas can only be confirmed by the owners of these rare pieces.

Ruy has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from San Francisco State University.
