ABOUT ME

Hi, I am Veronica Grech, an illustrator and professor currently living and working in the northwest coast of Spain. I am really interested in capture the contemporary way of life creating colourful images and characters inspired in my favorites (fashion, music, cinema, travels and TV series). In my artwork I experiment with shapes, space and vivid color palettes to create graphically compositions. The result is a clean and fresh vector-style work, that offers my colorful and simple personal view of Reality. I also love write my own Children Books and drawing with all kind of traditional media like ink or collage and watercolors that helps me to improve my creativity.

"Create is my passion, learn is my focus, enjoy is my goal."

Some of my clients include  LA Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Spectrum, Unicef, The New York Observer, Urban Outfitters, The Telegraph, The Boston Globe, Zenith-Planeta, Ford,  Pull&Bear, Penguin Random House, Columbia University...
