Spanish illustrator and self proclaimed collector of memories Nuria Riaza creates enchanting biro etched beauties with her inky weapon of choice. Nuria plays with a curious and occasionally dark subject matter, creating wonderfully detailed and mysterious sketches. She loves to draw with her blue pen, scribbling tattoos and unfolding her bittersweet creativity on the paper.
