Inês da Fonseca
Inês Da Fonseca was born in the beautiful city of Lisbon, Portugal. She is passionate about expressing emotions through illustration. Her creative practice focusses on producing colourful children’s illustrations which are often themed around love, acceptance and spirituality.
She has a post-graduate degree in Design from IADE Creative University. After her studies, she began her career as an art director in Lisbon. Inês further enriched herself and her work by moving to London, where she lived for a long period of time. For the past eight years, she has worked in advertising agencies including Ogilvy Lisbon and McCann WorldGroup London.
“My background always pushes me to look for a perfect combination between illustration, design and art direction.” She has published sixteen children’s books (Portugal, UK, USA, Brazil) and featured in exhibits such as the “Childhood Memories” exhibition in Gabriel Fine Arts in London, United Kingdom and Merc’art Lisbon.
