Hi! I’m a graphic designer and illustrator born and raised in the north of Portugal, Vila Real in 1995.
I graduated in Communication Design from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Oporto (2013-2017), and in 2018 I moved to Spain for some new adventures. I did an Erasmus internship in Valencia at a screen printing studio (Lanevera Ediciones) where I developed my passion for illustration. That same year I moved to Barcelona to become an illustrator and there I did a postgraduate degree at BAU (Barcelona University Design Center).
I’ve participated in collective and solo exhibitions in Portugal and Spain, and collaborated with some companies, agencies and cultural organizations such as Ogilvy Madrid, Cruz Campo, Illusalon and CineClub of Oporto.
I’m also part of a cultural organization (Instantes Mutantes) and I like to believe that I have an important role in the cultural dynamization of my hometown.
Through my work as an illustrator you can feel the influence of design and whenever it's possible I try to combine the best of both worlds. The love for nature and the animal world are my biggest inspiration when it comes to drawing.
