My name is Maria Montes and I am a designer and artist passionate about illustration and letterforms. Originally from Catalonia, I moved to Australia in 2006, where I currently reside.
My practice is set by the principals of constant learning, sharing and educating about the creative process. My artworks are based on ideas, where the process becomes vital as it explains the design rationale behind each piece. Above all, I have a story to tell.
Nowadays, I split my time between Melbourne and Barcelona working on graphic design, custom lettering projects, illustration commissions, textile design and calligraphic personal development. I currently teach calligraphy workshops in Australia.
