I'm a Brazilian artist, illustrator, and certified hypnotherapist, who is passionate about expressing creativity while taking good care of emotional and mental health. Trying to pick myself up after an awful experience with burnout, I'm slowly recovering my creativity. I have worked independently for over a decade, and I have self-published over 10 books. I also worked as a children's book illustrator for Row House Publishing and Science Naturally (Zara's Big Messy series, Science Wide Open series, respectively). I just finished my own children's book called A Gift For Julio, and I've been posting comic strips online since 2015.
