"I see illustration as a way of coloring the world and adding more beauty and good to the constant bombardment of negativity that overflows from it. My main inspiration is the fauna and flora in Colombia, where I live now. They are lush, colorful, peaceful, radiant, complex, and so powerful. I want to transmit positivity, light, and love through my images. If our minds are set to solidify these thoughts and they result in tangible expressions and bursts of eye candy, then I think we as artists have an immense responsibility to share and transmit those vibrations to others." Catalina was born in Medellin, Colombia and raised in Miami, Florida (USA). She is a graduate of the Liberal Arts Department at Florida International University (Miami). She has been living Colombia for the past 10 years with her husband and chihuahua and currently works as a freelance illustrator.
