Marta Lafuente

Marta has an artist's spirit which is profoundly felt in her presence as a person & in her work. The energy found in her mixed media works, embracing both painting & photography, resonates joy, life, memory & motherhood. It was these subtle, yet powerful qualities which led us to invite her to join the agency.

Her development as an artist has already seen several stages, working with mixed techniques on paperboard, paper or wood, illustrating books published by Lumen & Random House & creating some exquisite award winning short animated films of her sketches.  Her work is consistent, beautifully executed & elegantly composed & has been exhibited extensively in Spain & the US.
