Francesca Filomena – Designer

Hi everyone, welcome to my world!



I'm an Italian illustrator focused on children's books. After my studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lecce (Italy) I followed my interest abroad through different courses. I discovered my passion at the Sarmede International School of Illustration and I started to work for private clients. As today I've completed a few books and it is always different and fascinating. So here I am, expressing myself and my ideas through my art.

Francesca is a wonderful and talented artist. She is professional and communicates clearly. She worked hard to communicate with both me as the publisher and the demands of the author/client. I am would definitely recommend her again!
