A creative studio focused on research and curating Art and Crafts handmade
in Portugal


Whether curating an exhibition, sourcing objects, collaborating with artists to create new pieces, I love to research all around Portugal and celebrate our singular and diverse heritage. I can also assemble antique crafts collections to respond to a specific request.


Our aim in this publication is not to suggest yet another interpretation of the collecting phenomenon.

Our proposal is less ambitious but, we hope, not irrelevant: we want to contribute to the knowledge of private collections in the Portuguese context, especially those centred around popular art and handicrafts.

The first book in this series dedicated to private collectors of popular art focuses on Felipa Almeida’s own collection, which ultimately prompted this project.

Art direction

Bringing together artists and craftsmen and adding value through art and beauty is at the heart of each art direction project, highlighting the history, culture and traditions of its territory.


Twice a year I open the doors of my studio in Campo de Ourique, Lisbon, to present thematic pop-ups. I like to start with a theme and, piece by piece, gather a collection of objects that materialize that initial idea.

If you’d like to visit the showroom or learn more about the studio, drop me a message.

Research Diary

The Research Diary started on Instagram and unveils an heritage that is often unknown. It is where I share the constant art and craft search I do in books, museums, markets, galleries, antique shops and artist and craftsman studios.
