I am Brazilian. I reconstruct extinct animals, so I am a paleoartist. I've been also working since 1998 with various illustation techniques as color pencil, graphite, gouache, oil, watercolor, digital illustration, 3D modeling, animation and sculpture. I am undergraduated in Graphic Design at Universidade Estadual Paulista-UNESP.
With the soul of a biologist, I never left the infant stage of liking dinosaurs. As an undergraduate I have developed a methodology to illustrate prehistoric animals with the detailed study of functional morphology, ecology and environment.
