Hi! I am a spanish illustrator based in Cambridge, UK.
After studying Fine Arts in Madrid and working as a freelance illustrator for some time I decided to move to the UK. Where I graduated from Cambridge School of Art with a Distiction in an MA in Children’s Book Illustration.

I always find myself focusing on those little moments that happen in everyday life. I love creating small narratives in my images, always trying to make the interactions between my characters feel warm and genuine.
I also enjoy working with lyrical, more abstract narratives, combining images and text to express personal thoughts and emotions.

I’m passionate about nature and riddles, and secretly dream of becoming a private detective one day.

For any comissions, or if you just want to say Hi : marina.ruizfernandez@gmail.com
