To your right you can see some of the poem images I illustrated. Even though my preference is to draw animals, I had an absolute blast sketching the poem about Canada. If you haven't read it yet - you can find it here. It's one of the funniest ones!
Here are some photos of where some of my paintings have ended up. The ones that are not with me, have found the coolest homes, with friends or family - the support means to much to me, thank you!

The gallery of videos to your left show many of the paintings I made and how I made them. If you have any questions about paints used, technique or choices I made, do contact me, I'd love to chat!
Lastly, here you can find some of the merch I offer. It's not the most modern fashion out there, but the clothes are quite comfy. The phone cases are also so quite fun and unique - I can finally take Jupiter with me wherever I go :)
thank you so much for stopping by
I'm not sure where to start here... I'm Brazilian - married to a Canadian (on the right); lived in Peru, Mexico, London and now residing in Canada! I am a microbiologist, a painter and we've just incorporated a Company with my husband's family. I love bouldering and dancing to latin music. Love going to church and am learning how to play the bass (left) and am taking singing lessons for the first time in my life!
In terms of art - my biggest interest is to capture close up shots of animals, and through this, my goal is to create a momentary connection between my work and the audience.
Animals have such amazing and unique souls I'm very fortunate to have the oppor-tunity to try and capture these
I find a sense of real peace when I'm painting animals; I became a biologist because they fascinate me, so I try to pour as much love as I can into every canvas, just like Grandma's nanaimo bars (look them up, they're delicious).
On a more serious tone, anthro-pomorphic threats such as climate change and surplus killing are a real danger to many species. I'd like to play a part (even if only a little!) to help where I can, so for every print or original canvas I sell,
15% of the price goes to animal conservation charities.
More specifically, I focus on the following charities: Nikela (International) and Defenders of Wildlife as a local option (click on the names to access the link to each of their webpages). They have lots of initiatives that target specific countries and animals.
I'd (always) love to hear about new charity options, so if you have a local (Canadian) or any other charity you love, do message me; or if you'd like to chat more about any of the things I mentioned above do make sure to send me a message below or DM me on Instagram!
