Hi! I’m Verónica de Arriba, illustrator and designer, and I live and work in Granada (Spain).
I founded Depeapa in 2007, originating from the Spanish expression “de pe a pa” which means “from A to Z” “from beginning to end”, referring to the artisanal process of my designs.
My work mainly evolves around a world of female figures, flowers and plants… love playing with color, light and geometry. I work in many ways, mixing different techniques and mediums. Illustration, ceramic, textile, painting…
My clients include Slowdown Studio, Urban Outfitters, Frankie Magazine…
My designs have featured in articles by Harper’s bazaar, Elle Decor, Frankie magazine, Boston Globe, Milk magazine, House and Garden, Kireei, Flow magazine, Mollie makes, Yen, Viva… and in books like “Freestyle – Illustrating urban fashion book” edited by the Chinese Sandu publishing, “Koala” by Thames and Hudson, “Pequeña empresa creativa” by Kireei.
I opened my Etsy shop in 2011 and later my own online shop, since then it has been a great adventure to send my products to clients all over the world, from Japan to US. You can also find my products in many shops around the world.
I work with nearby suppliers. I believe that knowing where, how and who manufactures a product is very important. I try to care of every little detail in order to make your purchase a special experience and offer a marked difference from mass produced items.
I hope you enjoy my products as much as I enjoy making them for you!
