Bristol-based modelmaker from Portugal, bilingual in Portuguese and English.
After studying jewellery-making and getting a BFA in Sculpture, I'm now applying those skills to the construction of puppets and props, with a focus on model making for stop-motion.
I enjoy bringing characters to life and overcoming the physical challenges that stop-motion entails. As the main project of my MA in Animation, I built a stop motion puppet from scratch and created a film about the process.
