“As a child, one of my favourite hobbies was drawing and painting. As I grew up, this desire to make art became stronger and at the time of finding a profession, I opted for design. I studied Design at the Federal University of Santa Catarina with an emphasis on illustration and ever since have been developing my skills and techniques in a self-taught way. My great opportunity to debut in the world of arts was when I participated in 2015 in the Elephant Parade Floripa (in Brazil). Since then, I continue producing pieces and participating in other initiatives that unite art, culture and preservation.”
