What people say
"Lucia worked on a number of design and illustration projects on a freelance basis over 12 months. Over that period Lucia added great value to each project with her creativity, attention to detail and level of technical ability. Clients were very impressed with her work. Lucia is great fun to work with and we all learnt some Spanish! I also highly commend Lucia for her work ethic. She would be a great asset on your next design or illustration project."
"Lucia is an incredibly talented designer and artist. She has anability to see both the big picture and the minute detail; easilytaking a big idea and distilling it into smaller parts with perfectaccuracy. She is a warm, considerate person... a team player whogives 100% all the time.
"Lucia is fantastic to work with and has a rare talent for turning conceptual ideas into stunning illustrations and graphic designs. I worked alongside Lucia on several projects, before hiring her to design a curriculum resource for primary school educators across Australia. She worked seamlessly with the author and I to turn our ideas of connectivity, culture, and children into engaging and sophisticated illustrations and overall design. The end product was exactly what we hoped for, and the resource has found great use in classrooms across the country. I look forward to the next opportunity to work with her again."
"I met Lucia in 2008 while I was the Program Manager for the first Australian Social Innovation Camp. Lucia was the lead designer for one of the projects being developed during the Camp. Since that, I have hired Lucia to support initiatives for projects I have led in the Social Impact and Social Good space in Australia and other parts of the world. During that time, I have always been impressed by Lucia's ability to deliver high-quality illustrations, layout design for curriculum resources and web designs for a number of digital platforms. She is a great listener and is able to create different options that align with the client's needs. I have also been impressed with how much she has grown during this time and how passionate she has continued to be to use her skills to make a positive impact in the world. Some of the awards and recognition she has received during the past few years are the result of her dedication and talent. I highly recommend Lucia for anyone needing a best in class illustrator in the Social Good, Public or Private sectors. "
On a personal note
She loves traveling, food and cooking; no recipes, no measurements, whatever is left in the fridge, she'll turn it into a nice meal.
Creative in her own way, analytical, driven, problem solver, “squared”, quiet and pragmatic. She enjoys drawing, illustrating, fixing and building things. Not much of a people person, she choses very well her words. She keeps the accounts and plans head.
