Maria Luisa Cruz De Beires Proenca De Carvalho

Illustration - BA (Hons)

Hi, I’m Luísa, an illustrator from Porto, Portugal, currently based in the UK.

I’ve just graduated from my BA (Hons) Illustration at Cambridge School of Art.

I am all about analogue and can often be found working at my messy desk, using a range of materials in an intuitive and informal way. I am passionate about design, colour, drawing from life and printmaking.

At heart, I am a storyteller. I like to capture the poetry in the mundane, as well as human and natural fragility.

I love working with children, exploring new and interesting ways to approach art.

In the future, I am eager to work in publishing and spend my days telling stories through images.

If you have a project where we could work together please drop me a line! It would be a pleasure to chat.
