A gouache illustration of a white-throated bee-eater (Merops albicollis)
The white-throated bee-eater is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family Meropidae. It breeds in semi-desert along the southern edge of the Sahara, Africa.
Born in Lisbon, Portugal. I studied in Porto and started working on animation right off college. After spending two years as a volunteer in Benguela, Angola, I returned to Portugal and started working in painting and illustrating.
The love of the relationship between sketch and color moves me to constantly try and find a balance in my work.
