I live and work in Italy, after high school I took a degree in Fashion Design at Polimoda (Florence-Italy) and worked as a fashion designer, but that was not what I really wanted to do in my life. While working I attended a children book illustration workshop run by the Italian illustrator Giacinto Gaudenzi. Since then I discovered that my great passion was drawing so I went on as a self-taught illustrator and occasionally author creating my artwork and projects for children publishers in France, Italy, UK, U.S.A. My work has developed throughout narrative, non fiction and fiction books. I love this job that becomes different every new project and what I really care is time, I believe that having the proper time to work is the best way to make it worth. What I'd like to do now are book cover and magazine illustrations, that would be new to me.
I'm a Freelance illustrator and Author
I have illustrated children books for: Creative Editions (USA), Le Sorbier (FR), Casterman Jeunesse (FR), Usborne Publishing (UK), Mondadori (Italy), EL (Italy), Giunti (Italy). I have illustrated BD for: Images DOC Bayard Presse (FR). My works were selected at the Bologna Children's Book Fair Illustrators Exhibition in: 2000, 2002, 2009, 2013 and at the Nami Island Concours in 2015.
My illustrations are hand made using a mixed technique of airbrush and acrylics. When I create a book project I start from info and documentation research, then I create the story, the story-board and if needed, a book maquette.
