About Me

Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Painter

Hello! I’m Mafalda! Let me tell you a little about myself.

Born and raised in Portugal, now based in Toulouse, France, I am a true world traveller. More than a decade spent as a dance teacher has allowed me to travel all over the world, learn new languages and get to know people from many different cultures. It has taught me so much about the world, and how to communicate with it.
Now, on my thirties, I decided to go in a different direction and go back to my first passion, the visual arts. I currently possess a degree in Painting and one in Graphic Design and I am specialising in webdesign.

My other interests include sports (crossfit and MMA), cats (I have 4), veganism / animal rights, learning new languages, cooking, creating jewelry.

I’m open minded, perfectionist, honest, stubborn, curious. My experience is vast and varied.
