My name is Candela, and I am a freelance illustrator based in Barcelona.

After studying Fine Arts at Salamanca University, I took a postgraduate degree in illustration at Eina (Barcelona).

When I was a child, I loved looking for bugs and little animals around gardens. Now, I draw them. Cute girls, flowers, plants and animals define my personal universe, which I also express in ceramic pieces.

My illustrations have been published by the French magazines Julie, Moi je lis and Histoires pour les petits (Milan Presse). I have also made illustrations for children and young readers books, such as Trôp facile, la pâtisserie !, by Agnes Besson (Larousse France, 2018), Minus Lupus by Anne Loyer (Larousse France, 2018) the young readers saga Diario de Marta la Rara, by Ana Bermejo (Montena, Penguin Random House, 2011-2014).

I combine my work as illustrator with pattern design, making prints for The Wallery, Silvia Cairol Studio and Estudio Marisa Sanjosé.

If you wish to ask me anything or contact me for commissions, you can email me at candela.ferrandez@gmail.com

I will be glad to talk to you!
