Clara de Frutos graduated in Fine Arts in Madrid (where she is originally from) and received MA’s in children’s book illustration in Cambridge (UK). She is currently based in Kilkenny, where she is working as a concept artist for the animation studio Cartoon Saloon, while she works on her personal book projects. Clara is a traditional artist who enjoys using sketchy lines for her illustrations as well as painting and linocut printmaking. She enjoys topics based on folklore, witches and nature, as well as fantasy fiction narrative. But she also loves representing everyday live scenes as well, as she is on a personal quest of telling the stories of forgotten women of history through her drawings.
