Born in São Paulo and raised in Vancouver, Fernanda expressed a keen interest in arts from an early age. Her father, an architect, exposed her to the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gerry, helping spark her passion for creative design. She got her start in art and theatre before she went on to study Art History and Visual Arts at the University of British Columbia. After university, Fernanda spent a few years freelancing as an interior decorator and personal organizer, before deciding to go back to school and enrolling in Design Formation. In her free time, she enjoys sketching, visiting museums, traveling, and hanging out with dogs.
