About

Ran away from the computer!

I graduated in graphic design - an area that i still continue to work with - worked for 2 years in a great place related with museums and exhibitions, but then i felt the need of going back to a more manual work rather than just sat on the computer.
I went back to studying but this time in beautiful Cornwall, UK - MA illustration, authorial practice. This course, gave the opportunity to explore many things, and to learn a variety of printing techniques, to develop my own work and to learn.
I went a bit further with etching and screen printing, and fell in love!
After a year, i returned home, and decided to try to start a small studio where i could continue my own work and hopefully work with others.
So Carapau Amarelo started very slowly, with a long time to lean more, to understand the process, to make many mistakes and find new things!
It's been now a few years since the studio started, and hopefully more years are to come!
