My name is Ariella Abolaffio and I am an illustrator from Florence, Italy.
After studying media and working in advertising I have finally returned to what I love doing.
As a child I could always be found drawing, especially at school during maths class, or at home on all the furniture, much to my mother’s dismay.
She is much happier now that I stick to paper and digital media.
Other than making picturebooks the best thing in my life is my cat, who is a constant inspiration in my work and always willing to lend a helping paw if I need someone to lay on my laptop and stop me working
