Tell me about your project. 

Hi! I'm Raquel

 

A queer illustrator living in Malverne, NY. 

My shop, Maquina 37, is named after my 1937 Singer sewing machine. My mom calls my sewing machine "la máquina," which literally translates to "the machine." It's a reminder of my family's immigration story, which is my constant inspiration. 

Growing up queer, Hispanic, and a first-generation American gave me a unique perspective, which I cherish.

We each have a story that is worthy of being told. As an illustrator, I tell stories through old and new mediums, such as sewing, painting, collage, and digital drawing.
