Olá! Konnichiwa!

I am Yukie. You can call me "Yuki", "Yuki-chan" or "Hori-san".
I was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, currently I am based in Japan.

More than embrace a single profession, I identify myself as an enthusiastic creator: UX/UI Design, Graphic Design, Visual Arts, Photography, DIY, Cooking, Gardening, etc. 

Nowadays, I have been engaging in a challenging transition from print to digital, through exploration of UX/UI Design.

During pandemic, I have become fascinated to vegetarian meals and edible gardening. 🌱 I love improvising and creating new recipes.

I'm also an adventurous traveler and a dedicated apprentice. I’m always ready to learn and to share knowledge and practices.

Thank you for visiting my portfolio! 🙂
