A bit from Tita:

My favourite media are liquid watercolour, colour pencils, and Chinese/India ink. I absolutely love Japanese brushes.

I keep changing my mind about favourite children's writers and illustrators. But I think that Jean de Brunhoff, Maurice Sendak, William Steig will always be there.

My childhood was especially great because of my adventures shared with my younger brother.

I love Alien, Jurassic Park, and Monsters University. I also know the lines of most Disney classics (some of them in Portuguese).

When I travel I always buy a picture book from the place I am visiting.

My money usually goes to books, chocolate, and art supplies. Not always in that order.

I live in Glasgow with my husband and my cat Juca. I consider myself a cat/dog/dino person.

Still trying to connect with my inner adult.
