Illustrations made with love by Bárbara Rocha, a portuguese artist.
Who is Bárbara Rocha?
"So, I grew up in a real nice place surrounded by green, with mountains close by and the sea by my side.
I always liked to draw and explain things, so when I had to choose a profession it was very easy and obvious to me. It had to be something visual, that I could explore and organize to explain things. Graphic design seemed perfect to me and still is one of my great passions. The other two are photography and illustration. All of these passions are related and it's this fusion that I love.
I graduated in Graphic Design at ESAD - Matosinhos (erasmus in ESA - Lorient) , then took a professional course in Photography at IPF - Porto and later a master's
degree in Illustration at ESAG - Guimarães.
I worked with several design companies and clients in Portugal, France and Canada.
I've lived in Lorient, Lisbon, Pézenas , Guimarães, La Rochelle and Montréal and then I came back to lovely Porto (because i left my <3 here). Today i'm working as a freelancer.
Meantime I participated in several workshops and exhibitions. I was co-founder of an association of Illustration, co-organizer of the International Illustration Meeting of S. João da Madeira. In 2017 I self-published the book "The Sun of Mrs. Blue". I regularly participate at illustration markets."
