When I was a kid I had no clear idea what I wanted to be when I grew up. I planned to become an astronomer, a gardener, a writer, or a dog. Or even better - all of these at the same time.

I used to study speech therapy, journalism and finally graduated in philosophy. How I ended up being a freelance illustrator is a bit of a mystery even for me! But what I know for sure is that drawing was always my way of keeping something I really liked with me forever, whether it be a stunning sunset, a cold sea, a bizarre folklore beast or an amazing person I happened to meet on a train. And I’m incredibly grateful but not surprised that illustration eventually became my job.

Now I spend most of my time working on clients' projects or planning my own story (which may or may not be a huge novel about an astronomer who was also a writer and a gardener and a dog). Apart from that I enjoy traveling with my friends, studying new things and annoying my cat.
