Illustration, art, books, dreams: It's all about beauty!

In a world where maybe things are not exactly how we've imagined them...

I won't stop to imagining


I'm an italian illustrator based in Milan. I began drawing and painting as soon as I was able to hold pencils and brushes in my hands.

I completed my higher education in Graphic and Visual Arts in Milan and shortly afterwards I started working in the area of new media communication and web design. I have attended courses and masterclasses of illustration, drawing and painting in Italy as well as in Ireland and I received a Master Degree in Applied Arts at the "Scuola Superiore d'Arte Applicata del Castello Sforzesco" in Milan ("Milan Superior School of Applied Arts"), with a specialization in mural decoration and fresco painting.

I published two illustrated books by Gill & MacMillan: the great success “Spuds ans the spider”, in march 2018, written by Seamus O'Conaill and “Spuds and the crock of gold” in February 2019, by the same author.

Let's work together!
