Marta Cabrol

I was born close to Barcelona in 1976. I remember when I was a child drawing all the time in the margins of my school papers and books. Not always to the appreciation of my teachers! I was very lucky to have a mother who worked in the local library where I spent many hours reading lots of books. And it was there that I began my appreciation of how illustrations can support and occasionally enhance the written word. This was an important influence on me because it helped create a special sensibility to the world of images.

After studying and working for 12 years as a graphic designer, I found my natural creative home in the children’s illustration world. I can say that my job is one of my favourite hobbies. And so with my illustrations I feel I can combine the children’s world of imagination, storytelling and reading which have always been an important part of my life.
