What’s the most important object in your studio? A pack of cigarettes.
Paper or plastic? Definitely paper. It decays faster because of its natural fibered origin and has higher probability of getting damaged thus increasing the work’s value.
Favourite project you have produced so far? I rarely find my projects totally complete. I completely agree with the poetic thought that the artist never should be satisfied and that perfection and completion should be relative to one’s eyes and perception.
What are you working on right now? I’m taking a General Design Bachelor’s degree at the Aveiro University. I’ve been doing some freelance work within graphic design and tattoo designing.
Favourite food? Cheese, especially goat.
Coffee or tea? Love tea, but always need coffee
What’s your earliest creative memory? Our caretaker back at kindergarten asked us to draw two of our best friends at the time. I grabbed some thick green, blue and yellow markers and drew her overalls a checked pattern.
How do you prefer to spend your mornings? As a college student, usually sleeping. But personally prefer hang around the kitchen cooking.
