Catarina Mendes Garcia
Catarina Garcia (1986)
I'm an young artist from Lisbon, Portugal.
I have developed my work in drawing, painting and printmaking since my studies. After my degree and during my master's, I started to work also as an illustrator.
I have already illustrated Children's books, Book covers, Websites, Editorial work and other specific kinds of work-on-demand like Whiteboard Animation, from which I have to illustrate Storyboards and adequate the ideas to the drawings and record them. I then adjust them with the sound.
Drawing is my main skill but I'm able to work with several different techniques like pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic, oils, collage, etc.
