Overview

I'm an award-winning illustrator and designer based in Valencia, Spain. I have worked in advertising, press and publishing media.
My style is colorful, powerful with a touch of elegance and mystery. I like to work with digital media as if they were analog tools, maintaining the textures and strokes of the brushstrokes.
I am easy to work with, I easily capture what the client needs and I know how to materialize it into an image. With colorful, stylish and professional illustrations I help my clients to stand out.
I also pride myself on keeping on schedule.

I loved working with Irene and would recommend her in a heartbeat. Her professional approach, gorgeous work, attention to the agreed upon time line as well as responsiveness to minor changes was a 10 out of a 10.
