About Natasha

I’m not the girl from Ipanema but I’m still Carioca. A native Brazilian, I was born in Rio de Janeiro and aim to deromanticize the exotic through storytelling.

By day, I’m a copywriter at a creative agency. By night, I make angsty art.

Being an artist infuses the business of everyday living with not only beauty but curiosity. I’m in it for the contrast, the counter-intuitive, the strange, the dark, the enigmatic, and the inspiring cultures that I’ve grown up as and around.

When I’m not behind the keyboard, lens, or canvas, I can usually be found on planes & in museums in search of inspiration. I’ve also been spotted in local coffee shops debating whether I actually need another bag of beans (I never do need more but no one ever stops me).
