Bio

Hello, my name is Irena Freitas! I'm an illustrator from Manaus, Brazil. I have a BA in Journalism and Graphic Design, and I recently graduated from an MFA Illustration program at SCAD. ​​​​​​​

Expertise

I love illustrating people and funny situations that happen in our daily life and to create busy compositions that invites the viewer to interpret the image as an active role in the visual narrative.
