It all started when I was 5 years old and learned with my mother how to make an origami basket. I was amazed by the magic of transforming a simple piece of paper in an object, and since then I’ve been fascinated by paper and its infinite usages.
I’m graduated in Social Communication by Escola Superior de Propaganda e Marketing (ESPM) and also in Fine Arts at Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) – São Paulo, Brazil. Living and working in London since 2014, I attended to a children’s book illustration short course at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design (CSM) and also Props making techniques at CityLit. I’m member of Paper Artist Collective since 2016.
I worked as a graphic designer for over 15 years in advertising and editorial markets. Today I work as a freelancer, developing graphic designs, illustrations and paper engineering. By the way, the passion is still strong!
