Hello! It's nice to meet you...

I write and illustrate books for little people and am happiest drawing and telling stories. 

I was born in sunny Rio, Brazil and have been making pictures ever since I could hold my first crayon. 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.

Screen-printing is my media of choice for creating picture books and I'm forever in love with it. I work by hand and like it that my illustrations exist in 'the real world'. 

I love the outdoors, animals, dance and theatre, all of which are inspiration for my stories.

I work from my studio in London, where I live with a ginger fellow and our two cats, Daisy and Bear.
