Marta Balmaseda

After years of working in Graphic Design and Magazine Layout my little inner bird shout me that it was time for me to focus on illustration which was really the reason why I initially studied Fine Arts. Since I took that happy decision I’ve been able to join both illustration and mural painting with my passion for traveling and children. I worked for years around the world decorating children’s Hospitals in collaboration with a non profit Foundation and I feel very lucky to have already published several books in Spain, Germany and USA. I also work under the pseudonym Olivia Beckman. I love drawing people doing everyday activities and animals with fluffy hair.
