I made my first illustrated book (with a little help from my mom) when I was 3 or 4 years old. It was entitled "Pepito y el astronauta" and it was about a little crazy boy who wanted to travel to the Sun. It seems it was a really good experience, because I do not make anything else since then.

I started running my blog, “La niña polilla”, in 2008. Back then, I was an enthusiastic person about illustration and art who wanted to become a professional illustrator. That was my closest biggest target and it realized in the summer of 2010, when I joined Pencil’s team.

Nowadays, I am proud to have worked for so many different clients and I am pleased to continue learning and gaining experience in very different fields of illustration.

I kindly invite you to check my work and explore my blog entries. I hope you enjoy and appreciate my illustrations as much as I enjoyed working on them.
