Juliana De Cesare is a surf-loving Brazilian illustrator and designer that has made Mt Maunganui home. She creates delightful artwork inspired by the ocean, the surf community and nature, under the brand ThreeFootRides.
“I would describe my artwork as colourful and a bit funky, and I’d like to think that it’s very diverse/inclusive — Illustrating different body shapes and
skin colours,” she says. Her feelgood designs also feature on greeting cards, stickers, metal key rings, tote bags and decorative washi tape.
Her (very affordable!) prints are handpainted and/or drawn, then finished digitally and printed with long-lasting archival ink on acid-free, archival matte paper. She has a wide range of designs in various sizes, but is open to custom jobs for people who want something bigger. They also make perfect gifts.
In her spare time, Juliana loves surfing, of course, as well as gardening, film photography and connecting with her local community.
