Hello, I am an illustrator and graphic designer. I draw since I can remember, and I do it because I love it.
I truly believe that the greatest joy of being an illustrator is to witness the happiness of the writer when they see their written words turn into images that had only existed in their imagination.
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but I live in Cochabamba, Bolivia, with my husband and two sons.
I’ve studied animation and filmmaking at Buenos Aires University. I have illustrated many children’s books, as well as material for raising public awareness on environmental and social issues. I’ve done a lot of other stuff and I will eventually write about it here, but in the meantime, you can meet me through my work.
Oh, and you can read some opinions from happy people I’ve illustrated for.

“Not only was Lucia extremely professional, she took the information that we gave her and did a remarkable job with executing the vision we had for the book. Additionally, she was more than willing to help me navigate the process of publishing. She was kind, punctual, patient, and clearly she takes great pride in her business. Also, the illustrations were spectacular. My daughter is writing a book series and we plan to hire Lucia to illustrate every one of her books. Thank you so much for making this process seamless. You are truly exceptional at what you do.”
