Joana studied Biological Sciences at the University of São Paulo (USP). She is currently studying for a master’s degree at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science and is finishing her teaching license in biology, both also at USP.
She is passionate about nature and its mysteries since her childhood, influenced by her parents who are also biologists. Joana has worked with microbiology and molecular biology since the beginning of her undergraduate studies, but she is also involved with basic education, as she consider it the main key for a better world!
Drawing has always been Joana’s escape. Either during a class or to calm down, Joana found in her drawings so much more than a hobby. It is also a great passion. She loves being with her family and pets and if you say the words "beach" or "waterfall", you can count her in!
Joana is one of our illustrators, uniting her two big passions: the study of life and drawing.
