Fiel has been drawing since his childhood. In subsequent years, he developed his artistic talents experimenting with other media such as ceramics and metalwork. In 1994 he discovered that his heart belonged to sculpting and he started making works of art out of wood. In 1994, his wood sculpture Perigo Eminente in the exhibition Objectivo Linha Alberta won a first prize and some degree of fame. Two years later he received an other award and obtained a scholarship for a 3 months internship in Zimbabwe to master the technique of working with stone.
