Illustrator & Graphic Designer
Carla Orozco is an illustrator and graphic designer based in Switzerland. She draws inspiration from a lifelong interest in human anatomy, the female body, animals and plants. Her work explores the relationship between human shapes and nature, and features prominent colors.
Born in Peru, Carla moved to Switzerland with her family when she was four. As a child, she began drawing almost as soon as she first held a pencil. Her mother once said that she was “drawing absolutely everywhere in the house, even on the window frames.”
In school, she amused her friends by illustrating a comic book about their future lives as adults. She drew a life of fun, freedom and the adventures they could only dream of. For Carla, freedom would be a constant pursuit in adulthood.
As a young adult, administrative jobs and business school drew her away from art for a time. When she moved to London in 2011, she began drawing again, which led to her interest in digital art. While living in one of the most artistic cities in the world, she took advantage of life-drawing classes to deepen her understanding of the intricate curves and lines that make the human body a work of art.
To develop her technical skills, Carla began studying graphic design in 2017. She then launched a career as a freelance graphic designer, specializing in branding and illustration.
