I moved to Den Haag (Holland) in 2011 where I started to work like a freelance illustrator to companies and magazines like The Underground, Mythgard Institute, Buddha Jones or HBO. Currently I live in a inspiring place, Sintra, in Portugal.

In my work my inspiration comes from reality. People, real and strong women, nature, colors. I’m very motivated by the concept of synesthesia, as the color helps me to transmit what the line can’t do. I use the pencil to represent the recognizable element and the wild watercolor to represent the instinctive part of the illustration.
