About me

I am a writer and illustrator.

I was born in Bogotá/Colombia, surrounded by a huge loving family, friends, bright colors, music, weird fruits, sunshine, lots of rain, but also rainbows.

I currently live here with my amazing son Luca, my rocker partner Iván and our crazy old dog Menta.

I have a background as a psychologist and an art therapist, but my  passion is in children’s literature.

I try to make my work diverse, heartfelt and personal, folkish, a bit retro, joyful, with a Latin touch.

I feel deeply grateful to have participated in many beautiful projects: books, puzzles, animations, branding, family portraits, and magazines all over the world.
