I love reading, playing ancient music with my husband and to spend a sunny afternoon on a rowing boat on the nearby lakes, with my sketchbook and pencils. After completing my Diploma at Artistic High School and illustration courses at the European Institute of Design, I started as a naturalistic illustrator, my first passion. Then I encountered the poetry, the creativity, and expressive freedom of the children's picture books... and that completely changed my work!
I have exhibited my artworks in Lisbon, Madrid, Tokyo, London and in some international illustration competitions as Bologna Children's Book Fair (Fiction), Ilustrarte, International Biennial of Illustration, Bologna Children’s Book Fair (Non-Fiction). I took part in the making of the series "Le Grandi Fiabe" for the 'Corriere della Sera' which obtained the 'Andersen Prize' for the Best Illustrated Series.
