I am an independent Concept Artist and Illustrator currently living in Toronto, Canada. I work both on my creator owned projects and teaching art online.
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 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 a small Atelier ran by Mandy Boursicot, a good friend of mine.
Now I reside in Toronto and work and teach from home living alongside my girlfriend and my cat!
