is a New York City-based Illustrator and Graphic Designer

Margarita began drawing at an early age and refined her skills while obtaining her BA in Studio Art at Marymount Manhattan College in 2008. She then went on to pursue her MFA in Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology, graduating in 2011.

Margarita's reportage work is inspired by the people and places around her, which is why she always travels with a sketchbook. From trips to Europe and around the city, her page is focused on line, form, and negative space.

Margarita's whimsy illustrations have been a recent venture and are centered around social and political issues. The fanciful nature of these drawings allows her more freedom to play with ideas.
