Hello!

I live close to Lisbon and to the sea with my family, Aisha the Cat and Mustafa the Turtle.

I often walk around with a little book where I sketch my ideas for new candles, and then I try to give them a wax body using all the techniques I have learned.

I dedicate my time to the making of each candle, I never make more than two candles at the same time, except for the sets of different floating candles.
