I’m a Portuguese illustrator and children’s books writer* who spends her days crafting stories and making stuff at the lovely Little Pond Studios in Lisbon, Portugal.

*Every so often, I’ve been known to wear other hats, including communication designer, web designer, comic book artist, cookbook author, food stylist, photographer, teacher, student and, most importantly, crafty mom.

Welcome to my website. Please browse my illustration portfolio, check out the books i’ve written, find out more about me and, if you have any questions or would like to collaborate, get in touch.
