Can you introduce yourself in a few words…

How would you describe your creative universe ?
Brazil is very rich in popular culture, nature and folklore. I always try to put these more surreal elements in my work.

There are a lot of artists that inspire me. Art Naif calls my attention. I grew up in a small town, this reflects in my production.

What is the project you dream of making happen ?
I want to illustrate a children’s book, whole, printed, beautiful (haha).

At the moment I am working on a project that involves folklore and electronic music. I also work with fashion, I am producing some prints.
