Marta Cores was born in spring of 1987 in a small and green region called Asturias (Spain). She has studied at Barcelona Fine Arts Academy, followed her studies at Salamanca University and finally in Bescia (Italy).
In Italy she discovers the work of Bruno Munari and the world of artistic pedagogy and children’s illustration. Then, she realizes that it is possible to base the education process in the artistic experience, so she moved to Bilbao (Spain) to get her pHD in children’s senses through an illustrated book.
Currently she’s living in Lisbon (Portugal), working as an illustrator and designer. Her illustrations talk specifically to children, through simple association with their imagination, fundamentally through the world of animals and nature. She plays with visual poetry, at times connected with fantasy.
