Arantza Sestayo was born in San Sebastián, Basque Country Spain.

Her artistic process is self-taught and she begins to be formed professionally through portraiture, and in ceramic design and in the production of cartoons in the Camelot studios of Castellón.

Her journey in the illustration begins with publications such as Rooie Oortjes of erotic and humorous comics, the Swedish children's magazine Psago Prinsessan, and the American publishing house S.Q.P.

In Spain publishes with Norma Comics "Wicked Kisses" and participates in the book "Vampires".

The municipality of Castellón commissioned an illustration for a façade of the Ateneo Assembly Hall, and published Duende, as a compilation of his work.

Currently some of his work has been ported to Penguin Random House, and has participated in the special edition "Game of Thrones 20th anniversary" by HarperCollins Publisher.
