Marta Zafra currently works  as a freelance illustrator and artist. Her work delicately covers a panorama of varied subject and content. The chosen treatment for her illustrations exhibits a careful solid base in draughtsmanship combined acutely with a subtle intuition for color, mixed both by hand and digitally. Her interest in figuration lies in the detailed depiction of the quotidian through personalized notions of family and the familiar. Whether it be botanical illustrations or the portrayal of animals and people, her decisions for each composition are strangely unique and precise. The familiar is often transformed into the bizarre, the past is often revisited and the real is made unreal.
