Artist Statement

I am a freelance illustrator, working and living in Lisbon, Portugal.

I have been making collages since I was a kid. I used to sit on the floor and tear up magazines for hours, joining pieces of paper of different shapes and colours together. Later I learned how to use a pair of scissors and some glue and started filling notebooks, walls, furniture or any kind of plain surface. Then I just learned how to edit pictures on the computer and stopped gluing everywhere.

I collect memories, personal and collective, national and international. My collages are made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new one. They may include newspaper titles, classic and vintage photos, pieces of paper, portions of other artworks, book pages, glued on a new piece of paper.
