Using clear and powerful graphical forms, Bárbara brings them to life with rich textures, atmospheric brush strokes and moody colours, creating an extraordinary visual language that is all her own.
With her background in art direction, she’s able to quickly understand her client’s vision, flexibly adapting her approach to conjure up artwork with maximum appeal. Her style is decorative and figurative, with an emotional and nostalgic side to it. Sometimes, by carefully omitting a key detail from an image, she confounds expectation and is able to convey more feeling to the viewer by doing so. Growing up in a creative household, Bárbara’s painterly upbringing shows through clearly in her work, as does her dreamier side. She enjoys sitting back, watching the clouds blow past until the stars come out above a unique landscape. Her clients include Editora Abril, Tena, Calypso Cards, The Daily Telegraph, Good Housekeeping, Ilustralle Papelaria Criativa, Modefica, Nestlé, Simple Organic and others.
