 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I’m currently doing a PhD on Book Design. I’m specializing in the relationship between Illustration and the
picture books Design – trying to understand the illustrator visual thinking’s role on conveying new
narratives and paradigms.

My undergraduate degree (5 years) in Fine Arts - Painting, gave me visual literacy and knowledge about
techniques and History of Art to fully understand visual communication as a visual phenomena and
cultural expression. I’ve chosen to specialized in Drawing (in a 3years Master) to study the roots of Art
and Design disciplines.
I’m professionally working since graduation in the publishing industry as a illustrator and layout designer,
besides being a passion this has allowed me to attain the field experience needed to pass on to my
university students.

producing texts and academic data for publishing.

Areas of expertise:
Painting, Etching, Drawing, illustration.
History of Art, Sociology.
Conventional numbering and identification systems, working with databases.
