Hola and Howdy! My name is Blanca Estefania, and I am a Mexican illustrator living and working throughout Texas.

 

I have always enjoyed drawing and painting and love the freedom of expression it gives. Body positivity and self-confidence are important to me, so my work primarily centers around the female form. I love illustrating figures with confidence and beauty of all varieties.


I have a wonderful husband, an adorable daughter, a goofy dog, a quirky cat, and many,many plants!
