Claudia Cárceles is the artist behind


Originally from Spain but currently living in the small Caribbean island of Grenada, were I work as Medical illustrator for St. George's University. On my spare time I do personal projects or paint murals with my colleague and friend Fari. 

I am biologist and artist specialized in scientific and medical illustration.

I am experienced in traditional techniques such as watercolor, graphite, color pencil, acrylics, ink.
Once in a while I like to immerse myself in the world of 3D and animation using programs such as ZBrush and Cinema 4D.
