Meet our Magnificent Makers

Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.

By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.

We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.

Hi! I am a visual artist and animator based in Toronto, Canada. However, I am originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. When I'm not drawing, you'll find me walking around museums, exploring national parks or spending time with my family. My main work focuses on visual narratives through character design, portraits, caricatures or abstract images. Always experimenting with new techniques. I am equally comfortable with analog and digital technologies, and I use both according to the needs of the project.
