My name is Inês and I'm a Berlin-based freelance illustrator.
Like most of you I started drawing since a very young age but I never stopped and in 2009 I ended up graduating in Stage Design in Lisbon.
In 2011 I moved to Barcelona to keep studying and telling stories through Stage Design but a turn of events made me change my route and in 2013, after I moved to Berlin, I started working as a full-time illustrator for a mobile app, a project that lasted until 2017.
Since then I work as a freelance illustrator in my little home studio in Berlin. My illustrations are a combination of smooth shapes that work together with playful colors and textures.
Between client work and personal projects I occasionally get lost in the Natural History Museum and reading graphic novels.
