I am a Toy designer and Textile Artist from Matosinhos, Portugal, where I live and work. I’ve graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto in Sculpture. While pursuing my personal artistic style the appeal of textile materials was such, that I’ve never felt the need to apply any of the traditional sculpture techniques learnt during my studies.
I find irresistible all kinds of toys and food in all its forms and shapes. In fact food is a recurrent theme in my work. I create soft, cute, humorous and colorful creatures and accessories that can be found under the brand “The Fabulous Creations of Maria Filipe”.
Currently I am making needle felted designer toys and plush toys that I transform into bracelets and brooches.
