About me

I was born in 1996 in a small town of Santa Catarina state. I'm an illustrator and diagrammer of children's books. I graduated in Architecture and Urbanism from UFFS Erechim city and took a drawing course in Escola Municipal de Belas Artes Osvaldo Engel. I've already illustrated more than 50 children's books. Today I'm feeling a strong need of culture and diversity for writing and art.

"When I was young, I had the idea to draw some things and I found myself in those drawings. Everything always revolves around art. My reactions, my confusions, my feelings, my expressions. Art is my life, in the minimum details. Art is being."

My Process

  1. 1



    This step consists of a lot of dialog with the client to understand how he/she is imagining the proposal, thus creating a briefing. I always say that working on a book requires cooperation, that's why everything needs to be taken into account.

  2. 2



    On the second step a lot of research happens from what was discussed with the client, piecing together all the main ideas he/she had - sometimes even specific character features - and with that, looking for references to create our sketches and our ideas.

  3. 3


    Here I organize and format all the sketches to deliver the client a complete file so he/she can see how the end result is going to look like, this way we can analyze and organize in the best way, together.

    Coloring and touch-up

    Finally, we decide the color palette and start to paint the illustrations following what we agreed. Here is also when the final touches are added to the formatting and organization of the file for printing.
