My favourite childhood books were collections of tales from the Italian and European folklore. Mysterious, magical and whimsical stories have always been the ones to fire my imagination the most. I particularly like working with light and tones, exploring characters’ worlds and their personality.
I mainly use traditional techniques but I also enjoy working digitally and with printmaking.
I studied Eastern Asian cultures and languages in Venice and comic book art in Padua at Scuola Internazionale di Comics.
I moved to the UK to continue my studies focusing on children’s book illustration at Cambridge School of Art.
