My name is Anna Valpuesta Farré, although my creative pseudonym is “Anna florsdefum”. I’m an artist, illustrator, nature lover, book devourer and infusion addict, born in Barcelona (Spain) on may 15, 1991.
Although I like creating illustrations aimed at all kinds of audiences and exploring different styles, my work is characterized by its colorful palette, by its small details and by the recurring presence of elements from the animal and botanical world (realistic or product of my restless imagination).
With my illustrations I like to tell stories, provoke a reaction and create awareness. That’s why in some of my works I’ve incorporated endangered species or social and environmental issues that concern me.
I graduated in art and design from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Escola Massana), where I discovered my passion for applied arts on textile, photography, and illustration. Later, to professionalize and develop as an illustrator, I completed a postgraduate degree in illustration at BAU (UVic) and, later a specialization course in children and juveniles illustration at EINA (UAB).
