“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." - Thomas Merton


Marcella works as a freelance illustrator, fine artist, and published author living in Austin, TX. She specializes in character design, illustration, and visual storytelling. Armed with a unique skill set, ranging from concept design, character modeling, texturing and character rigging, Marcella excels at using paint, pencils, and software programs to create characters and environments needed for any given project. 

She is currently working on her new studio space, and an upcoming solo show in the Austin area.

When she was young, she lived more in her head than in the real world. Everything had a story. The patterns on the walls had faces, toys felt sad when they broke, and she spent more time with her dolls than she did making friends. Watching Looney Tunes more than once a day was normal. It was somewhere between coloring books and playing dress-up that she discovered a blank sheet of paper and pencils.
