Hello, hello!

I am an author and illustrator of children's books and I'm happiest drawing and telling stories. Screen-printing is my media of choice and I'm forever in love with it. I work by hand and like it that my illustrations exist in the real world. 

I was born in sunny Rio and brought up in the Brazilian countryside. After studying art and design, I went travelling and came across the MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art, from where I graduated in 2014.

I work from my studio in London, where I live with a ginger fellow and our ever growing family of cats.

** 📚 **

 

I run interactive and fun events for children and I'd love to visit your school, library or festival. 

My sessions are typically based on my picture books, with activities including storytelling, character design, games and hands-on workshops and crafts. I also run workshops and talks for aspiring children's authors and illustrators on the themes of writing picture books, children's book illustration and character design. 

I'm very flexible and the format can always be adapted to accommodate your needs. Let me know what your ideal author visit would look like!
