Raquel was born in Alcoy (Alicante, Spain) in 1973. She loved spending time in her ar tist father’s studio and was captivated by both looking at and creating artworks from a young age. At 14, she became an official member of the Carbonnel artists’ studio. Commissions began to come in for her when she was still a teenager and this was her first step on the ladder to artistic success. After taking a break to have a family, Raquel returned to painting and established herself as a successful hyperrealist. Her bright and refreshing palette combines with the clarity and accuracy of her images to create charming and irresistible portrayals of jars and bags of sweet treats.
Educated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Alcoy. The brilliance of her work lies perhaps with her ability to paint the transparent glass jars and cellophane packaging with such authenticity. Her artworks are exhibited in private collections in Spain, France, England, Italy, Dubai, Arab Countries and Russia.
