I'm a Brazilian surface designer based in New York.
Since 2005 I've been working mainly for the fashion industry, developing textile prints. I graduated from Graphic Design in Rio de Janeiro, but it was during an exchange program in Italy, at the Politecnico de Milano, that textile design and its role in fashion first appealed to me. Motivated by this formative experience, I started to explore surface design as a powerful form of expression.
I have lived in London for two years while pursuing my MA at Central Saint Martins. In mid-2009 I got my masters degree in Textile Futures and moved back to Brazil hired as a senior textile print designer by La Estampa, one of Brazil’s most prominent textile companies.
On my career as an artist, my canvases were selected to be part of 12 new suites of the emblematic Copacabana Palace Hotel, in Rio de Janeiro. And in 2015 I was a resident at the SVA BioArt program with a following solo exhibition at the Natura Innovation Hub in Soho, NYC.
My motto is patterns should be unexpected. I hope you find your visit here to be surprising as well!
