In 2017 I made a watercolor of my first dog, right after her passing, as a way to keep her close and overcome the pain of her absence. Months later, with the desire to help strays, I created MAT, doing custom pet portraits and donating a percentage to needy animals. MAT is the initial of my first 3 dogs: Marrom, Amy and Theo.
Besides pets, my other big inspiration is wildlife. I love to go outside to seek inspiration in nature. Many of my paintings of animals from Brazil are made from references that I photograph. For me, there's nothing like being able to live and portray these experiences in nature. That's why I created the project "100 encounters in watercolor", in which I intend to make 100 paintings from my photographs (follow along on Instagram ).
Despite having started as a self-taught artist, today I participate in courses with renowned artists that I admire, always looking to evolve my technique and learn from their experiences.
I've participated in national and international exhibitions, having paintings in 10 countries. In 2020 I was invited to participate in my first international exhibition “Artists for Painted Dogs”, donating 50% of sales to wildlife conservation. Since then, I dedicate myself more to original artworks, seeking to participate in new exhibitions and help with conservation (check out other exhibitions below).
I hope I can colour your space with the love
of your pet and the diversity of wildlife!

In addition to the % destined for needy animals, I always look for other ways to help animals. Whether donating paintings for auctions, raffles and bingo or participating in exhibitions in which part of the amount reverted to needy animals or wildlife conservation projects.
