About me


I was born and raised in Brazil, and I have been living in Tokyo since 2010 when I came to pursue a graduate degree.

My academic background is a mix of visual arts, animation and fashion, and I have worked for some fashion companies like People Tree and Junko Koshino here in Japan. I have also researched for the Japanese Agency of Cultural Affairs in the fashion field.

In the last few years, I have decided to become an illustrator and since then I have been doing commissions for print and digital media. I also create comics!

I absolutely love good food and cannot live without books! I am also a helpless art supplies geek!
