I am an artist originally from Brazil and I knew I wanted to design since I was 6!
At that time, I submitted a drawing I made with my markers (while sitting on the floor...) to a contest and I won first place. My art became a stamp for Brazil's Independence Day celebrations. It was all over the place in billboards, packaging, tv ads and I was delighted to see it become so popular!
Fast forward to years later, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my Design studies & career. I have worked in many different industries which gives me a broad portfolio. I truly enjoyed every experience I’ve had in the past and I am looking forward to the next steps into the future!
