I am a "carioca" from Rio de Janeiro but now me, my husband and our three lovely kiddos call Canada our beloved home.
My family likes to say I started drawing as soon as I could grab a pencil. Drawing has always been my passion.
I attended the Escola de Artes Visuais Parque Lage (EAV-RJ) and the University of Fine Arts (EBA - UFRJ) to pursue my development as an artist, knowing that children's illustration was my main goal, but Brazil had no degrees available in Illustration. Learning about the foundations of art was a great pathway to develop my own illustration career.
I have worked illustrating for animation, for fashion and for school books in Brazil. In 2017 I moved with my family to Canada, decided to build here my career as a picture book illustrator. In this wonderful last years I published several pictured books, working on my dream career and growing with each work.
I believe every project is a wonderful new adventure I gratefully embark on. I want to always keep creating!
