Thank you for visiting my website!
I am Barbara, an illustrator living in a mustard colored house on the island of Mallorca, Spain.
I have been drawing all my life, for as long as I can remember. During my childhood however, all my drawings were in black and white and I was using a speedball pen. Everything changed around 20 years ago when I found inside my bag a very basic children’s watercolor set. A friend of mine put it in my bag when I wasn’t looking because, he told me later, he believed I would love it. I tried the watercolors straight away and have been using them since then. He was right, it was love at first sight.
I am inspired by anything that makes me think, makes me feel light, good and happy.
It can be a word I have heard or read, a sound, a smell, the beauty of nature, a unique smile, colors…
I mainly work with watercolors and ink pens.
Sometimes i add a touch of gouache, acrylic inks and watercolor pencils.
Feel free to contact me if you are interested in any of my work, if you have any questions or just to say hello!
I would love to hear from you.
