Hello! My name is Tarcila and I am the illustrator behind Meu Quarteliê. Born in Rio de Janeiro city, I moved to Toulouse in 2018, where I work and study since then. I am a person of rituals and, therefore, I have a deep appreciation for my routine. Drinking coffee, cycling, writing and drawing are daily activities for me.

The projects you’ll find here, as expected, reflect a particular view. Watercolour is my “medium”, and it’s also the basis for most of my work. Sometimes, however, I flirt with digital.

In addition, I work also as a Graphic Designer and you can find my other works here. <—
