Communication & Design
Born in Coimbra, I lived in Sertã until the age of 17, and my family still resides there.
I have been making collages since I was 11, and since that age I want to be an artist and, at the same time, to work in organizations and projects whose core is/has a humanitarian and justice purpose.

As well as in remote and mountain villages, such as the village of Bravo, Sertã, and in 2023, that of Videmonte, Guarda (PT).
