I have a Bachelors Degree in Communication Design from Porto University’s Faculty of Fine Arts (Porto, Portugal), and a Masters Degree in Textile Art and Design from the Estonian Academy of Arts (Tallinn, Estonia). I have also attended a semester as an exchange student in the Graphic Design Bachelors program at the St. Joost School of Art & Design (Breda & ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands), and a course in “Contemporary Art Markets: a Historical, Analytic and Utilitarian Perspective” at Porto University’s Faculty of Fine Arts (Porto, Portugal). Additionally, I have informal education in acrobatics, classical ballet, contemporary dance, and graphic arts from various institutions and academies.
I have been working as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator since 2015, and a multidisciplinary artist and performer since 2021. Thus far, I have exhibited, performed, and participated in residencies in Portugal, Sweden, Spain, and Estonia. My practice has been supported by an active engagement in independent research and critical discourse, having participated in art talks, lectures, informal educational programs, international conferences, and publications. In 2022, I joined the international KAIRÓS Young Reserachers Network.
Between 2019-2021, I worked as a gallery/installing assistant at EKA Gallerii (Tallinn, Estonia), and between 2021-2022, as a curatorial/production intern at LARGO Residências (Lisbon, Portugal). Since 2019, I have co-created and/or integrated several collective projects with a focus on curating and cultural programming, such as: Vent Space Project, mais uno +1, Mart’s Garage Open Artist Residence, Portal Ecosystem, and Artists Anonymous.
