A creative creature born in a village in the north of Portugal, near the lines that are drawn and blurred by the sea, she continued her studies in the Design career at the University of Aveiro to later work professionally in a design studio in Barcelona, for 7 years, reaching the category of senior graphic designer.

Always close to the lines of the drawing and passionately illustrating each project she undertakes, she decided to refine her skills by completing the General Illustration Course at Visions School – Illustration and Calligraphy, in Barcelona. Today she works as a Freelance Designer and Illustrator, always ready to get involved in projects or commissions that put her imagination and her hand to the test.

Illustration developed as part of the final project of the course Ilustra la Ciencia 8, from Illustraciencia, made for the thesis of researcher Olga Boet. After a long investigation, I gathered several photos of the 9 species of ants, with scale, their descriptions and the information that I could see live and with magnifying glass in the researcher’s office. With this material I created this infographic that compares the morphology of the head of the different species, all on the same scale, shaded with the stippling technique.

After finishing the entrusted illustration, I could not resist and created this fun pattern with the heads of the ants, maintaining their size relationship.
