I was born in Lisbon, a retro European town famed for its bright light and custard tarts. 
I studied architecture and moved to London, where I worked at a practice for a few years. Illustration had always been my first love though, and back to Lisbon I left architecture and soon started work as a freelance illustrator. Geometry did find a way to seep back in, providing a framework for my concepts, strong colors and textures.

I like nothing more than to translate complex ideas into simple and engaging images. I have over 18 years experience in editorial and advertising illustration. I also love to illustrate children's books.
