bio

Born in March 1996 in Milan, I graduated from Politecnico di Milano and I took a career as a visual communication designer and illustrator, constantly improving my illustration skills. 

I master different traditional techniques such as watercolor and graphite thanks to the teachings of Marina Marcolin, Marco Mazzoni, Joanna Concejo, Simone Rea, Carll Cneut, Thomas Cian and Entry Level picture book course by Ars In Fabula. I’m officially a freelancer right now. 

You can find me sipping a cup of filtered coffee and going around the city with sketchbooks, pocket watercolors and a cloud of curly hair that never stay in place.
