Raquel Martín was born in Barcelona (Spain) where she attended Art School graduating in Illustration. But she is now based in the beautiful little island of Minorca where she lives with her husband and their three kids. Her work has appeared in several magazines and publications in different countries and she has also illustrated several books for different Publishing Houses as ALBA editorial, Mosquito books or Minus Editions. She loves the light of her studio in her two-stories house in the center of Mahón where she works almost every day.
Gouache is her favorite media. She loves her versatility and texture. But also digital media is getting very important in her work lately.
