Biography

Portuguese made in Switzerland. Grew up across the river from Lisbon.

From my childhood to my late teens, I've wanted to be an astronaut, then an egyptologist, then an astronomer, then a writer, then a fashion designer, then a graphic designer, and only then did I finally discover the wonderful world of concept art and illustration, where I can mix everything up to my heart’s content.

I am interested in characters most of all, and good stories. In illustration, I love to play with symbolism, whether obvious or subtle.
My playgrounds of choice are Sci-fi and Fantasy, and the places where both meet.

I high-fived Iain McCaig once.
