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 of a Brown Long-Eared Bat, Plecotus auritus.

Inside some of the most beautiful and ancient libraries in Portugal, such as the Joanina Library at the University of Coimbra or the Library of the Mafra Convent, live colonies of small bats that fly around the book shelves at night. These little night watchmen protect the precious books by feeding on the insects that invade the library and eat paper.

One of the colonies of bats that live in the Library of the Mafra Convent belongs to the Plecotus auritus species, the sweet Golden-Eared Bat.
