Howdy! My name is Mar. I was born in Madrid but raised in Argentina. I´ve lived here & there and nowadays my headquarters are in Madrid where i live and work with my husband Maurix.

These are a few things about me: I love bandages & dinosaurs. I collect old bottles & jars. I like the countryside and wearing Hawaiian shirts. I dream about living in a ranch and building a tree-house. I am kind of small and i have freckles. I make tattoos. I know i was a cowboy in another life and i strongly believe in ghosts.

I studied fashion design (Universidad Politécnica, Madrid) and illustration (Saint Martin´s College of Art and Design, London). I´ve worked as a fashion and graphic designer for more than 10years  in companies such as Springfield, Zara kids and Brotes. A year ago I started working as a freelance designer and illustrator.

For any question, commission work, or to know something else about what i do, please feel free to contact me here. I am happy to hear about your projects and start working together. Thanks for looking around…  and now i shall tip my hat.

Aloha! Mi nombre es Mar. Nací en Madrid, pero crecí en Argentina. He vivido aquí y allá y ahora mismo trabajo y vivo en Madrid con mi marido Maurix.

Algunas cosas sobre mi…adoro las tiritas y los dinosaurios. Colecciono botes y botellas antiguas. Me encanta el campo y las camisas hawaianas. Sueño con vivir en un rancho y construir una casa en un árbol. Soy bastante pequeña, tengo pecas y estoy aprendiendo a tatuar. Se que fui un cowboy en otra vida y creo firmemente en los fantasmas.

Estudié diseño de moda en la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid e ilustración en Saint Martins College of Art and Design en Londres. He trabajado como diseñadora gráfica y textil por mas de 10 años seguidos en compañías  como Springfield, Zara Kids y Brotes. Pero hace un año decidí empezar como diseñadora e ilustradora freelance por mi cuenta.

Para cualquier pregunta sobre mi trabajo o encargarme algún proyecto no dudes en ponerte en contacto conmigo. Estaré encantada de empezar a  trabajar juntos. Gracias por la visita! Hasta la vista!
