Biography

Portuguese. Grew up across the river from Lisbon.

From her childhood to her teenage years, she dreamed of being an astronaut, an egyptologist, an astronomer, a writer, a fashion designer, and a graphic designer. When she finally discovered the wonderful world of concept art and illustration, she realised she could mix everything she liked to her heart’s content. So she set up to do it.

She is interested in characters most of all, and good stories within rich worlds with extensive lore filled with mystery. In her work, she loves to play with iconography and textures, to create poignant and visually appealing images.
Her playgrounds of choice are Sci-fi and Fantasy, and the places where both meet.

She high-fived Iain McCaig once.
