Sobre | About

teste.jpg

I have been passionate about creation and illustration since I was little. Throughout my professional career as a fashion designer, I have developed a brand of beachwear and activewear. It was always a desire having my own brand and it was working really well, but I also wanted to have a work experience in a company. I am a very curious person... I like to know new things... and I could not leave this other experience aside.

I worked in a Print Studio called Lenz&Co, developing prints for several brands in Brazil and abroad. Then I worked for brands like Maria Filó and Shoulder, working as a print designer.

Prints has always been present in all my projects and increasingly, I became specialized in this very charming area. Today I have my own Print Studio and I also develop for international and Brazilian brands. I teach print classes, courses...

I knew that my professional life would take me on a creative journey. What I didn't know, which started to awakening me more and more, in addition to inspiring and brightening people's day through art, to share my experiences, knowledge and ideas with everyone who have willingness to enter this wonderful universe of creation. Where imagination is endless...

Career objectives:

- Create different stories with brands developing prints for their collections and inspire everyone around me.

- Teach about print design and this criative world.
