Raquel Sanchez Pros

Raquel was born in the vibrant city of Valencia, Spain in 1979. She studied at the French school in the city and subsequently received her BA in Industrial Design at the University of Valencia. Unsure of this career path, Raquel soon discovered the world of graphic design which sparked an unstoppable world of creativity within her. In her mid-twenties, she began exploring illustration on her own and devoted herself to her true passion.
Her illustrations connect with her inner child. She enjoys drawing monsters who are unique in the sense that they are good and live among humans and animals. When she is painting, Raquel immerses herself in a parallel dimension, where she is most happy.
Raquel absolutely LOVES animals, especially dogs. She has had them practically all her life and the periods when she didn’t, her only wish was to be a dog mom again. Loosing Cuca, her first dog who lived 17 years, was very hard for her, and she spent many years dreaming about her. This love for animals is what inspires many of her illustrations.
A few things to know about Raquel: She is most content when she is near the sea or surrounded by nature, her favorite color is yellow, and she loves food (will eat at any time).
Raquel still resides in Valencia with her husband Matias and their adorable ten-year old Jack Russell, Monk.
