Karla Monterrosa-Morales was born and raised in tropical El Salvador and in sunny southern Spain. A big fan of clear skies and sunshine, she’s been having second thoughts about relocating to dreary Vancouver, BC in 2009. She got her first period when she was ten and hasn’t stopped talking about it (or any body fluids, really) since. Karla is an illustrator, painter, filmmaker, and hypochondriac. Some of her current obsessions include the concept of radical love, and WebMD.
Karla graduated from Emily Carr University of Art+Design with a BFA in animation in 2013. She’s worked on very cool projects for children’s television and public art installations since. Through animation, illustration, and trying way too hard, she explores the concepts of shame, honesty, and misfortune in everyday life. Karla
