“Every time I pick up the paintbrush I feel the urge to tell a story. Stories, that can´t always be expressed through words, but rather spark an emotion and provoke the imagination. I love when my invisible imagination becomes visible. My work is inspired by music and film as well as certain experiences and moments in my life which I process and convey through my artwork. Therefore my work is very personal and I think it is the vulnerability of an artist that makes his art unique and relatable. To see others connect and be inspired by my artworks is the reason I create, I believe we are not supposed to keep creativity for ourselves, but to use it to serve others. “

 

Besides painting and illustrating, Raquel is working as an Art Director for CBN Germany in Hamburg.
