I am Catalina Adelgoss, graphic designer and children's illustrator.

Colours, children's books and creativity make my work not boring, I live my life doing what I love to do. 

The children's classics 

I grew up in the 80s and 90s with the Disney classics and the Brothers Grimm tales. These stories inspired me and encouraged me to start illustrating early. Because of their details, colours and magic I still use them as a source of inspiration today.

My travels

Visiting new places is one of my greatest source of inspiration. The textures, colour palettes and shapes mixed with different cultures, foods and architecture continuously stimulates my creativity, so much I just want to illustrate every single place I visit.


Nature with its various forms and textures plays a big role in my inspiration and creative process. During every season I love walking outside while absorbing all the colours and admiring all the beautiful creatures that come across. Every detail inspires me and help me becoming a better artist.

My Family 

My family is my biggest inspiration. My children, a 3 year old and a 5 month old are my daily inspiration to create a world of colour and magic. 
They challenge me but also inspire me at every moment. My experience as a mother is definitely the best experience of my life. 

Who am I?

I am Catalina Adelgoss, a Colombian living in Germany. Five years ago I packed my bags and moved overseas. While living in Colombia I used to teach illustration at one of the most prominent Universities in Medellin, simultaneously I had my own business consisting of personalised illustrations and events for children. This was incredibly rewarding and filled me up with joy since I was able to make children's wishes come true by designing, illustrating and managing production for 5 successful years.
I now have a home in Germany. My husband and my kids are daily inspirations for me.
