The artwork I create is mainly inspired by my dual Portuguese / French culture, a mix between folk Portuguese traditions and French elegance.
My mother’s garden is one of the most inspiring places where I can find an endless source of beautiful flowers, greenery, trees, herbs, and fruit to infuse into my work.
You guessed it: botanical themes are my favorite, and I can never have enough of them!
Even though I finish my artwork digitally, I like to start most of my projects using traditional media like pen and paper to get an authentic, hand-drawn look. This step is fundamental to avoid the feeling of missing something in the creative process.
It’s so satisfying to look at a completed project and reflect on the steps that led me to the final piece!
