►IN HIS OWN WORDS:
I was born in 1981 in São Paulo, Brasil and since then I have been drawing and lnterested in everything related with visual arts.
My earliest memories are myself sitting on my uncle's lap with pens in-hand and many papers. I would have been 4 years old. Drawing is my definition as a person. My work and my hobby.
Before becoming an illustrator, I worked as a web designer and also studied industrial design in college so I have a strong influence by design in my creations.
My biggest inspiration is beauty.
I like things that are pleasing and visually seductive. Many of these things I find in nature and especially in a woman's body. 'Woman' is pure beauty and charm.
Another thing that inspires me is simplicity. I live the quote 'less is more'. The song of a bird is so simple and also so rich and do so well to me...
Without iPad I could not even be painting because I do not feel comfortable painting with mouse or tablet. I like to see where I'm going through the brush. Without the iPad I would not be doing these things. Another thing is that I can paint more comfortable lying on my bed.The end result is a much more relaxed paint.
