Isabel Hojas was born in 1977 and lives in Santiago, Chile. She creates wonderful narratives with fluid movement in her work, using beautiful tones and a skilled control of her inks and watercolours.

She has always wanted to create books and has experimented with posters, puzzles and T-shirts in the process. I love her perspective here of the riders in the snow.

There’s a sense of humour in her style, but it’s subtle and sophisticated.

It’s great that through her blog she shows us some of her preliminary drawings too.

I feel her 3-D collage work has a sense of calm and serenity to it.

      No problem, once again you’re spot on about the feeling for form. Very true.

    Love Isabel Hojas work – thank you for sharing. So much detail, you could gaze at them for hours. Especially intrigued by the lady standing on a table with her foot in her companion’s spaghetti! The expression on his face is so wonderfully resigned.
