I believe that art has the power to touch people’s minds, and so I like to incorporate positive, playful and optimistic concepts into my creations.

My Story

I’m a 28-year-old designer/illustrator based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and I’ve been working with art since I was 14.

My job is my passion and I can’t see myself doing any other thing for a living. I use this passion to communicate with others in a way words can’t reach. It’s the most pure, sincere way I find to express myself and to gather people that think alike.

Since I believe so strongly that art has the power to touch people’s minds and change their perceptions, I like to incorporate positive, playful and optimistic concepts into my creations. I like to believe I’m helping people – even if it’s small-scale – feeling better about themselves and about the world that surrounds us.

On October of 2011, I've opened a design studio with two friends and have been working together with them ever since.
