Hello!
I'm an Italian illustrator focused on children's books, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Lecce (Italy) with a major in Graphic. After my studies, I chose to travel and live for a period abroad, where I had the opportunity to grow as a person and an artist. I specialized with Anna Castagnoli at the Sarmede International School of Illustration and I started to work as an illustrator for privat clients.

I want to write another book just so I can work with Francesca again! She's super talented and very easy to get along with. She's very responsive and does a good job of communicating with you. She was excellent to work with. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with her. Thank you Francesca!

Thanks for the kind words but you make this collaboration easy for me too. You trusted me and gave me space to create, that's really important! I hope we would have another chance to work together.

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!
