Do you have a favorite Artist?
I have many favorite artists, with different styles. Some of them are: Gabriel Picolo, Butcher Billy and Pedro Lopes Art.

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
A great achievement, for me, is to see how many people like and comment on my work on the instagram profile. It is amazing to see this feedback from people around the world and also to know that some artists like Viola Davis and Michael B. Jordam see my work. That means a lot to me.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
I see myself making art and always improving.

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
I would love to meet Amelia Earhart, a strong, fierce woman who changed the story. Certainly an inspiration for all women.

How is one way you make money with your art?
You can make drawings to order, publish on websites or sell at art fairs.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
If I could go anywhere in the world, it would be the Norway to see the snow and the northern lights, and it seems to be a beautiful place with the architecture and history.

What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
I don’t have a favorite brand. I believe we should make art with what we have at hand, so it is easier for anyone to create.

Any advice for young artists?
Keep drawing. Insist. One, two, three times the same drawing. There is no easy way to draw and live from art. Just do not give up.
If you have children who like to draw, encourage, do not criticize. As Picasso said “Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.”
