My name is Julia and I like drawing things that move!
I’m a Freelance Cel Animator/Illustrator currently based in São Paulo, Brazil, where I live with my partner and my two cats Mika and Lupe. I'm a big adrenaline junkie and my favorite thing in the world is going to circus practice.


I graduated in Graphic Design at Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. In 2013, I moved to New York for a year on a scholarship as an exchange student at Parsons The New School for Design (I miss the pizza).


Back in Brazil, I worked as an in house Animator and Storyboard Artist at Split Studio and Birdo Studio for 3 years, two of the largest animation studios in Brazil for TV series. Since 2020, I’ve been working full time as a remote Cel Animation Freelancer. Some of the studios I’ve worked with include BUCK, Brand New School, Scholar, Anyways Creative and Twitter Arthouse.

Don't be shy!
