Juliana Castelo is a brazilian illustrator that currently lives in Barcelona.

She graduated in Graphic Design in Rio de Janeiro and worked as such for many years, but deep down she knew that illustration was her true call, what really gave meaning to her life.

With time, illustrating became so essential to her that she decided to throw herself in this colorful adventure.

She gets inspired by daily life, people she sees on the streets, the world diversity, as well as music and nature, but above all her biggest inspiration is her brazilian roots.

Juliana's work was published in Brazil, Spain and the Emirates.
