My name is Inês Fonseca, I was born in '89 in Lisbon, Portugal. From a young age, I lived surrounded by paper, pencils, paint and pens. 

Representing the world around me through illustration is a passion that has always existed within me and continues to grow. Just like a child, I love to recall my purest, childish and emotional side when I observe and represent the world around me. It is very instinctual for me - I just grab a pen and let it flow without too much thought.

After graduate and post-graduate studies in Design at IADE Creative University, I started my career as an art director at Ogilvy & Mather Lisbon and then moved to McCann Worldgroup in London, where I currently live.
It was with great affection and devotion that I co-created and published a collection of six children's books, with writer and friend Isabel Zambujal, called Vou pensar nisto (I’ll think about it) and most recently Dia bom ou dia mau? (Is it a Good or a bad day?).
 
Recently, I had the privilege to work with the lovely Leonor Xavier on O sonho da gata Zu (The Zu Cat's Dream). This book is part of a larger collection, made in partnership with 'Pais em Rede', an association that helps children with special needs.

Previously, my work has been exhibited at the Gabriell Fine Arts at the Bhavan Art Gallery in London, and at the Mercart 2017 Gallery in the most beautiful city in the world: Lisbon.
