I am a Freelance Concept Artist and Illustrator currently living in Toronto, Canada. I work as a freelance artist on movies, games and comics!
This website in both a gateway to find my portfolio and artwork and also a place to share my thoughts and tips on anything related to art.
I hope to share my knowledge of classical and digital art skills with you and help your daily grind to become a better artist!
I am originally from São Paulo, Brazil and I studied Digital Design at IED while living there. After that course was done I started to seriously pursue my art career once I moved to Florence, Italy to study and teach at the Angel Academy of Art.
After three years living, studying and teaching in Florence I decided to move to Canada, I first went to Vancouver and taught there at an Atelier ran by Mandy Boursicot, a good friend of mine.
Now I reside in Toronto and work freelance on movies and games! I also teach all I know about art from home to students anywhere in the world.
