Bruna Mebs was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she was introduced to the art world at a very young age by her grandmother Carli Portella. But life took her in a different direction, and Bruna soon found herself working as costume designer for film and TV. It took 5 years of working in the film industry and a degree in fashion design from FIT for her to discover that her real passion lies elsewhere. Bruna realized that what she really wanted to do was to start her own creative business. Since 2015 Bruna has launched her own illustration studio where she became known for her ink drawings and watercolor paintings. But art is not all she does, Bruna has recently rediscovered a love for writing, in addition to publishing daily on her online journal, she is currently writing a novel. An old soul at heart, she draws inspiration from period movies, antique shops and old books. After spending some time in NYC and LA, she currently resides in PA with her husband and bulldog Achilles.



The illustration studio was founded in 2015 with the intention to bring a classic charm to the everyday. All of Bruna’s designs originate from hand-drawn art pieces that were created using traditional techniques to withstand the test of time. Since then, Bruna has created a beautiful art portfolio from working with art directors, brands, influencers and small business owners. The studio also works with private clients making their dream art piece a reality.
