Madrid 1963

Marta Chirino is an artist and biologist. After graduating in C.C. Biological by the Autonomous University of Madrid, she completed her artistic studies with two years in drawing academies and an illustration course, along with her education at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Madrid. Since she was a child, she felt a strong attraction for the art of drawing and the representation of nature. During the period she worked at the Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid she became involved in different research projects, and the result is the drawings that illustrate several volumes of the Iberian Flora, among others, as well as those that complete numerous posters and magazine articles specialised in nature. Marta Chirino has specialised in drawing in pencil or ink, and always with motifs related to botany.
