After working for 13 years in the Research and Development department of a major Portuguese Graphic Company (Ambar, SA) as an artist and graphics designer, I started off as a freelancer in this area. I have got a vast experience in drawing (manual or vector art) photo mask and retouching, editing and final arts. After graduating in “Marketing Management” at the Portuguese School of Marketing and Administration (IPAM), I have completed professional trainings in Photoshop, Freehand and QuarkXpress. Furthermore, I have a large experience in Illustrator and Indesign Adobe software. Finally, I have also attended a workshop called "Drawing in Action", by the School of Arts in Vila Nova de Cerveira.
