Person who with all soul and every molecule live for art.
I was born in Italy where I have lived for most of my life and where I currently work as part-time illustrator. Starting at my earliest memories, I have always had a passion for drawing. Fed on a diet of cult TV, fairy tales and comic books I inexorably followed the path of imaginative art.
Stories feed the soul, I am an avid reader and I strongly think the illustrator is a storyteller who can create images and worlds made of magic, mystery, love, romance, tragedy, possibilities are limitless.
I began working as freelance commissioned illustrator few years ago and my work has appeared on several books and magazines. I enjoy the challenge of being a freelance as no two projects are the same and every day unlike the one before. My working technique includes mainly markers, pencils and watercolours with a painting style that often mix all these techniques together.
