Hello! I'm Bárbara Cachán (Barcava), an illustrator and graphic designer from Oviedo (1992), a little town of north Spain. My concerns for drawing encouraged me to study at my hometown's School of Arts in 2008.
Then, I continued my art studies in Salamanca, where I finally get my college degree in Fine Arts with Honours in 2014. That same year, I decided to complete my career doing the Master of Design and Illustration at the UPV (Valencia). At the end of 2015, I started to work as a graphic designer in illusion Studio, a design and web development studio in Valencia.
But "life is life" (as the song says) and a few months ago, I decided to return to my lovely hometown where I'm living now.
