Lucía Benavente is a storyteller, illustrator, designer and hatmaker in her spare time. After working as a journalist, she left everything behind for love and moved to a remote village. Her mother-in-law insisted that she ask for a job with the local government, but instead Lucía bought a telephone pole and opened an online store. In the ironing room she set up a secret workshop where she sewed headdresses and floral crowns, drew and, wrote her blog. She later moved to a proper workshop and stopped working alone, and she’s continued to write, draw, and design. There are still bad days and horrible years, but now she’s back in a small city, with a little more light and close to the sea. Life goes on!
