Marcela Huerta was born in Victoria, BC. She was raised speaking Spanish, and grew up in subsidized housing with her sister and mother. Both of her parents were political refugees displaced by the 1973 Chilean coup who met and married in Winnipeg in the late '70s. She attended Emily Carr University, where she graduated with a Bachelor's of Design, and was shortlisted for several design awards, including the 2011 Applied Arts Redesign, the 2014 Gestalten Creative Pool Spotlight, and the 2014 Hiiibrand Awards. After working as a design intern at the Satellite Gallery and Museum of Anthropology, she held positions as a Junior and Mid-Level Designer at Working Format and Free Agency Creative, respectively. She then moved to Montreal, QC, where she worked with graphic novel publishing house Drawn & Quarterly, first at their flagship store, then at their headquarters as a Production Assistant and Assistant Editor with their Editorial Department. She now works as a freelance graphic designer and author, and is based in Montreal. TROPICO (Metatron, 2017) is her first book.
