Why Catru?

When being a little girl, I lived with my 3 cousins for a while. When I was born, the first name my parents wanted to call me was Catruska, and they weren't allowed by law at the time. My cousins started calling me Catru. Years went by, and it simply stuck with me. Short, easy and fun.

I was born in Argentina.
I have free birds on my backyard.
I sign all my artworks as Catru, short, easy with some history behind.
I love to create, and I'm always making something.
I work as a Children's Illustrator and artist together with teaching about computers lessons.
