Overview

I'm a London based illustrator originally from Spain with a passion for narrative and storytelling through images. With a background in graphic design, my work is influenced by the mid-century design masters and contemporary children's book illustrators.

I truly enjoy the bookmaking process in all of its stages, from the first sketches through character design, composition thumbnails and page layout to final artwork. For me, this is a unique opportunity to build a whole new world from scratch around a story, enhancing and taking it to a new level. I love to help authors bringing their ideas to life!
