Manu was born in Medellín, Colombia in 1990. She studied Graphic Design and Advertising at the University of Medellín in her home town and Art Direction in ELISAVA in Barcelona. She has worked for advertising agencies such as DDB and McCann Erickson.
Manu grew up both in the city and the country, and spent most of her childhood playing with plants, animals, and exploring the woods. She is a cat person and a dog person, and draws every single day of her life. She has worked for SM editorial and wants to focus on children’s books and adult books.
She usually works with gouache, colored pencils, ink, and digital media. She really enjoys the technique of collage. Her favorite piece from her portfolio is “Beauty.”
