Graphic Design, Illustration, Photo Manipulation & Art Direction

Silvia MauLoa

Hi!, I’m Silvia Martinez (aka MauLoa), a freelance artist and graphic designer from Spain.

I was born Born in Pontevedra —a beautiful city close to the Atlantic—, and from the beginning of my life I’ve always been surrounded by creativity and an endless need of exploring. So it was no surprise that I got a master’s degree in Fine Arts from the University of Vigo (1994-1999), majoring in both Graphic Design and Audiovisual.

I soon began my professional career in the arts related field and after working in the creative department for a couple advertising agencies, I stabilized as Canal Uno’s Creative Director, where I managed a team and developed all kinds of projects for 10 years. At the end of 2015 I decided to fly alone and since then I’ve been working as a freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator, being involved in numerous international collaborations and developing other personal projects. I put my whole heart and experience in every commission —big or small—, always providing a deep knowledge of the aesthetical and/or communicational needs of each client.

I love what I do, with passion for creativity and things well done. In my free time, I enjoy traveling all around the world, music, arts, black beer (read Guinness), target shooting, sailing, being in nature and spending time with genuine, good vibed people.

So… here I am, and I’m all yours.
