Giovana is a Brazilian illustrator, based in Lisbon. She graduated in Fashion Design at SENAI/Criciúma, Brazil, and studied illustration at BCFE in Dublin, Ireland. She worked several years creating print designs for apparel, but since 2014 has been working full time as a freelance illustrator. Although her work is mostly focused on the children's universe, it has also been applied to a series of different mediums such as books, magazines, textiles, advertising, games and apps. She works mainly digitally, but in her spare time likes to explore traditional painting with watercolor and gouache and fill in sketchbooks. Her main inspirations come from nature, the women in her life, scenes from the day-to-day, literature, and her travels.
