About

Hello! I'm a Brazilian artist and illustrator, currently living in Portugal with my husband and our two children.

I graduated in Fine Arts by the Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation (1997) and earned a Master Degree in Art History by the Paris-Sorbonne University (2006).

Although I have always loved painting and drawing, and have always worked in the art world, it was only after the birth of my first child that I decided to fully commit myself with making art for a living.

I work from my studio at home, in the city of Porto, nearby the ocean.

My work is inspired by my children, the colors and shapes in nature, landscapes, flowers, animals and vintage books. I've lived in many different places like Brazil, Australia, France and Portugal, and my adventure travel experiences are also an important source of inspiration.

I mostly use watercolors, gouache and acrylics. Painting makes me feel happy and joyful and, throughout my artwork, I would like to bring some beauty, happiness and inspiration to other people’s home and life.  

WHAT I OFFER

Here you can purchase my original artwork and beautiful Giclée prints for your home, which I will carefully package and send to you. 

Art for kids rooms: my aim is to create an artwork that can grow with the child, bringing some magic and beautiful colors to their rooms. You can buy an art print from my collections, or you can commission a custom painting specially done for you.

Besides painting, my projects also include illustrations for children's books, children's bedding, decor and toys as well as editorial, stationery and greeting cards.
