"Design and Art with Brazilian Soul"
My motivation came from my soul and flows openly, on my face and my work. I love what I do and
I do it with intensity, I live every moment and I transmit every emotion.

In each project I dive deep into the region, into their craft and into the lives of the people who do them.
It is a dive governed by research and gaze, guided by the heart, made with respect and with the
rhythm dictated by time. I transform and provoke transformations, attitudes that reflect in the
surroundings and beyond.

I believe that design is one of the ways to value and eternalize these ancestral knowledges and the
importance of nature around us, so I try to use all the tools that I have to stitch all of this together
into a patchwork of infinite possibilities, creating feelings and generating emotions.

Through Yankatu I expose not only my work, but also, and perhaps most importantly, the work of
artisans connected to mine. It is a huge responsibility that I feel because I end up bringing with me
the dream of many.

I hope to be able to respond to all the affection and confidence that I receive from these
wonderful people, and I hope to be able to pass on to you, reader, these same emotions, so I
can continue to do that for as long as I live.

Thank you for taking the time to know a bit about my work.
