My name is Ericka and I'm an illustrator based in Florida.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and graduated from the University of Puerto Rico with a BFA in Art History in 2008.

I enjoy playing with color and texture, capturing movement and depicting the human figure. I'm particularly drawn to contemplative stories that have relatable slice-of-life dialogue, and would love to work on picture books or graphic novels with similar themes in the near future!

On my spare time, I play video games, attempt to wood carve, and browse the NYT cooking app, where I save a bunch of recipes but never actually try them.


Some of my clients include Penguin Random House, Macmillan, Holiday House, AirBnb, Snapchat, Grist.org and The Small Press Expo.
