Verónica Melo

I was born in the magic island of São Miguel, in the middle of the Atlantic ocean in 1990.
Soon I knew that I would be an artist, some kind of artist…


I finished my degree in fine arts in the Oporto Faculty of Fine Arts, and then I found myself in the strange real world…


Diving in the Atlantic ocean made me realize that I was more connected with this underworld than I thought.


For a while I dedicated myself to marine illustration and today I still use the ocean inspiration for many of my creations.


Now, besides other inspirations I dedicate my time to illustration, printmaking and graphic design.


Most of my work experience has been developed on the area of graphic design mostly because it is more common to find jobs in this field than in fine arts.


After working more time on graphic design I realized it is an area I like very much and that I want to invest more of my skills and time developing it.

I live and work everywhere but mostly between São Miguel island, in the Azores and Lisbon, in mainland.
