About Susana Carvalhinhos

At 6, I played make believe, pretend to have real exhibitions and sold my drawings to family and neighbours. Confronted between a promising ballerina career or being a painter, I held my felt coloured pens and never looked back.

I was born in Lisbon, Portugal in the early 80's, the city where I currently live and work. I’ve studied in the fields of Comics and Illustration and it was during the very first year of learning in this area I saw my drawings jump into a comic book edition.

I develop work mainly in illustration but also in comics and ceramics.

My illustrations have seen the daylight both in Portugal and abroad, and Japan is between the most regular collaborations. Along with other works, I've created illustrations for the Lisbon Metropolitan Transit System.

My artwork has been featured in several collective exhibitions, one of the latest at Museu da Marioneta (Puppet Museum), in Lisbon. Recently I have also made my first solo show ‘’Nova Gramática dos Sentimentos’’ (New Grammar of Feelings).

Illustrations with a coloured charm, yet with a strong contrast are some of the features of my work. Feminine, fluid shapes and a bit of stubbornness amongst the characters to tell a story using visual metaphors.
