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 live since then. I’m a person of rituals, which is why I love routine. Drinking coffee, riding my bike, writing and drawing are everyday activities for me.

The projects you’ll find here reflect the way I see things. I like to explore different techniques, but I have a special fondness for watercolor, which ended up becoming the basis for many of my paintings. Nowadays, however, I work more with digital art, an influence I brought from my background as a designer.
