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. I like to vary techniques, but I have a special affection for watercolour, which ended up becoming the basis for most of my works. I also flirt a lot with digital art, an influence I brought from my graduation as a designer.

I am interested in games, children’s books, female empowerment, animals and plants.
