Marta Abad Blay
Originally from Spain, Marta Abad Blay is an artist and illustrator who believes that the idiosyncrasies of handmade things are beautiful.
Her current collection of work consists of botanical, animal, and character prints, all drawn in her small studio in Amsterdam, and often under the curious eye of her daughter, Mia.
Motherhood, along with the nature world, are constant sources of inspiration for Marta. In addition to illustration, Marta also has a background in animation. You can see a strong sense of urgency and movement in her Whale print, available from our store.
We love supporting artists who cherish motherhood and who dream big.
Marta’s next mission is to illustrate a children’s book—and we can’t wait to see it! Her work is a constant reminder that you only need a light, table, and a blank piece of paper to bring the imagination to life.
