I live in Rio de Janeiro, where I was born, and where I took my degree in Fine Arts at UFRJ (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro). I have a postgraduate in print & pattern design by SENAI-CETIQT.

I love working with patterns, prints and colors... and believe that surface design gives one an unlimited number of possibilities in terms of imagination and inventiveness. It gives me special pleasure to produce coordinated patterns and collections, as well as elaborating colorways for home decoration, fashion, stationary, ceramics and plastics.

I have been doing this kind of work for over 20 years, and some my patterns have been sold in the USA, Europe, Asia and Brazil. Designs of my authorship were featured in five numbers of Texitura, international trend and fashion magazine, and in two books by Zeixs dedicated exclusively to print and patterns. My creations have also been applied to stationary, swimwear and interior design.

My work is diversified and eclectic. My preference goes to patterns that ally shapes and colors, in a simple language, graphic and cheerful. As a lover of photography, I delight in elaborating patterns that take my photos as an inspiration, as this may lead to rather unusual results.

At the moment I do freelance work in my home studio, and I'm teacher of college and postgraduate on SENAI-CETIQT in Rio.
