biography

I am a London based Illustrator and a PGCE student (Art & Design Secondary) at Goldsmiths University.
My art is inspired by the struggles and absurdity of everyday life. The creative process helps me make better sense of who I am and create a language of colours and forms that communicate what I'm feeling.

I graduated in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts, at the University of Lisbon and I was an Erasmus student in Florence (Italy) for an academic year.
I also completed a professional course in Graphic Design & New Media, at Restart - Institute of Creativity, Arts and New Technologies (Lisbon). After that, I worked as a Creative Artworker in an Outdoor Advertising company and a Graphic Designer at the Cascais Town Hall.

I fled to London in 2014 , where I worked as a waitress to support myself and save money to study.
Meanwhile, I joined Sonsoles Print Studio (Pechkam), where I have been creating my screen prints.
I did an Art Residency at Kypseli Print Studio in Athens (Greece), where I produced many of the works you see in this website.

In collaboration with the photographer Gemma Mancinelli, I developed a performance project that explores the silliness of serving others.
