About me

Born into a family of artisans in Rio de Janeiro, since I was a child I have always had contact with arts, illustration, books, music.

At the university, my love for books made me study Library Science, but life guided me to other paths, on another continent and so here, in the Netherlands, I got back to what I always had as an inheritance: the power to recreate nature through paper, pencil and paint.

Drawing has always walked with me, but papercut simply found me, enchanted me and this connection is so strong that I try to express it in every piece I make. Each line drawn and cut represents a piece of my energy and love for what I do.

I am this, an artist passionate about paper craft
