Overview

Hello!

My name is Martina and I'm an Italian illustrator.
After spending my childhood peeling my knees, falling down from my bike, and drawing a lot, I decided to study art. I became passionate about comic books and graphic novels; quickly filling up all my shelves.
But the proudest elements of my collection are by far children's books. Their bright colors and use of cute, rounded shapes are the biggest reasons why I decided to pursue illustration.

After high school, I decided to specialise my skills through self-discipline and professional courses in order to create the very illustrations in children's books I enjoyed so much!
I also enjoy travelling and living in different places. My experiences from all around the world serve to inspire me and allow me to constantly keep evolving my style.

At the moment I am located in Denmark, where I am drawing with love and a lot of coffee!

Martina was great with communication and understanding. I would book Martina to illustrate more books if I ever decide to write more. She made changes that were asked and really understood what I wanted from the very beginning. For this to be my first book, I'm very grateful to have had a wonderful and patient illustrator.

Martina really is a five star illustrator. She took a collaborative approach that allowed her creativity to shine and really captured something special. Martina keeps in touch so that the project moves along and asks good questions along the way. I really enjoyed working with her and learned a lot. I recommend her wholeheartedly and look forward to seeing her future projects. She's a star.
