Biography

I’m a 3D modeller generalist artist, I love the 3d universe and make things look real with all the details. Before coming to Canada, I worked in Brazil as a Graphic Designer and illustrator for 2 years in a children’s book project. I moved from Brazil to follow my dream of studying 3D modelling for animation and games at La Salle College in Vancouver. While there ,besides learn a ton and meeting amazing artists, I truly felt in love with the 3D world and the possibilities that come with it, and my experience as graphic designer helped me a lot on the development of more artistic and appealing projects.
