Hi! My name is Martha Balaile, I am an Editorial Illustrator living in Cape Town, South Africa. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Visual Communication from the Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography. In my years of studying there I majored in Illustration, for you this means that I am well trained to carry out your project.
I work digitally on an iPad Pro using the software Procreate, meaning I can offer faster revisions than if I worked traditionally.
I like to work with stories that have a female lead. I create playful fantasy illustrations combining pastel colours with dark colours to create contrast. I love fantasy stories as well as true stories about women overcoming challenging circumstances. Let me help you bring your story to life.
