I am a Brazilian animator and, after completing my degree in Social Communication (ESPM University, SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil) in 1990, I went on to study animation and painting at St Martins in London, graphic design at the London College of Printing and drawing at the Escola Classica de Arte, SÃ£o Paulo.
My multidisciplinary background has led me to a career in animation, graphic design and illustration and resulted on a very individual style: mixing cutouts, drawings and puppet animation.
I have worked as animator or director for different production companies in Brazil, and in 2003 I wrote, directed and animated the 10â€™ film â€œThe Misadventures of a Dayâ€?, which won a â€œPetrobras Film Awardâ€?. (http://www.portacurtas.com.br/Filme.asp?Cod=1997)
I worked on many television programmes including documentaries produced by SESC (Brazilâ€™s national network of cultural centres) and regular contributions TV Globoâ€™s peak-time show â€œFantasticoâ€?.
And I also made advertisements, animated music videos and motion graphics sequences.
In 2004 I decided to further my studies in animation and, having been awarded a Chevening Scholarship by the British Council, moved to the UK to study for an MA in Animation at the University of the West of England.
I now work as a freelancer in both Britain and Brazil.
