Clara Leitão (1995, Portugal), studied Costume & Set Design at António Arroio in her hometown, Lisbon, and received her BA (Hons) in Design for Textiles (specializing in Print) from the School of Textiles & Design, in Scotland. During her studies, she completed a semester abroad studying textiles at the National Institute of Design, in India.

Her illustrations live mostly on paper, silkscreen prints (paper & textile) and embroidery. She enjoys creating fantasy creatures and characters, often inspired by tales she reads, stories she hears, dreams or images that are formed somewhere in the unconscious.

Clara currently lives and works in Estremoz, in the Portuguese countryside.
