Ana Afonso lives in Lisbon.

I work as a freelance illustrator and I’m also a teacher.
My academic career started with a 5 years degree in Fine Art, as a painter, by then I was seduced by graphical expression, so the next step was a Master in Drawing. Later, drawing and painting naturally came together in Illustration and page composition, so, that led me to a PhD in Graphic Design - about picturebooks and ‘authorstrators’.
