I'm an artist and illustrator from Portugal, born in Oporto. I got a degree in Fine Arts from the Oporto School of Fine Arts, where I later also got a Master degree in Arts teaching. I've worked as a sculptor for a few years, and more recently got more focused on illustration. I see myself as a professional procrastinator and natural born hedonist; a work-in-progress-epicurist, more bartlebyan than situationist. I like the sun, books, trees, cats and victorian mysteries. I like to depict strange creatures and the twisted side of fairy tales.
