Rats, in a Snake Palace Prison!
Section from a painting I’ve recently finished called Snake Palace. Inspired by a story in Angela Carter’s book of fairy tales. The folk tale is of a lady who accidentally marries a boa snake, and is taken to a palace.

My book Herberto published and wonderfully decorated by Bruaá!
A lovely review in Revista Ler: (Bing translation below)
Criadora do texto e ilustração, uma autora inglesa estreou-se na Bruaá e fez um dos livros mais bonitos do ano. Tudo graças aos animais poucos atrativos do jardim, a começar pela lesma. A página dupla central, evocativa da exuberância vegetalista de Henri Rousseau, brilha como o rastro de Herberto.
