I am Claudia, also known as the little spidermonkey I am a an architect and illustrator originally from Spain.
I enjoy illustrating empowering, funny and lighthearted situations. My passion for animals, my beautiful hometown in Tenerife, my drive to discover the world, to meet new people and to leave a little indent in our society is showcased through my illustrations.
My medium choices often vary from the digital realm deep into watercolours, gouache and acrylic paints using bold colours and contrasting shapes, loose childlike lines and a somewhat architectural approach.
I hope I can make your day a little less dull!
