I'm Maribel Castells and I'm an Illustrator & Graphic Designer based in Mallorca, Spain.
I grew up in a tiny village in Mallorca close to the mountains, surrounded by holm oak forests an open meadows. I spent most of the time exploring the countryside, building things, drawing and reading all sorts of books.
Today, as an illustrator I still practise my favourites hobbies, using my own stories and images to talk about the themes I feel close to: Joy, nature, simple life, sense of belonging and building meaningful memories.
Children's books are one of my main passions, but I also find inspiration in old stuff, folk art, vintage aesthetics, music and the many places I dream to travel to some day.
