Isabel Aniel was born in Bilbao, Spain, but later moved to Barcelona to study graphic design. The sun and life of Barcelona captured her. After working in the design industry for many years, Isabel realized that illustration was the best way to recreate her own universe and to give form to the fantasy world in her mind. Fueled by her passion for books, she completed a Master’s degree in publishing. Isabel is a tireless searcher of little treasures, such as vintage children’s books. She finds joy in the beauty of simple things, and in the magic of the unexpected.
