Hello, I'm Brenda! Welcome to my site!

I was born in El Salvador, but I'm currently based in Madrid. I've loved illustrated books ever since I can remember. I used to watch my father while he worked at his drawing table on design and illustration projects, and I learned from him discipline and passion for work.

I got my Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design at the Dr. José Matías Delgado University in San Salvador, and then I worked for a couple of years in advertising. In 2007 I made a stage as a spanish language assistant in a Lycée in Normandy, France; a year later i moved to Madrid, where I took some Illustration courses at ESDIP and then joined in 2012 the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at i con i. Along with my amazing and talented master's mates we created the collective 
The Illustration Gang.

As a graphic designer, my work experience goes through advertising, branding, typography, and layout, although currently I'm focused mainly on illustration projects. You can read my full CV here. 


These are a few things I love: "old" music, beagles, autumn season, blue and turquoise colors, learning foreign languages, traveling, eating pizza and cake, collecting illustrated books and playing Scrabble. If you have any inquiries, you may reach me through the Contact section.
