Hello!

My name is Martina and I'm an Italian, Finland-based, illustrator. After spending my childhood peeling my knees, falling down from the bike, and drawing a lot, I decided to study art. I became passionate about comic books; they quickly filled all my shelves!

After high school, I decided to specialise in illustration and now I'm a professional illustrator for children's books.

In the past, I've worked for Italian publishers and for American writers and I hope to be able to add something about that in my portfolio soon! I can work both in digital and with watercolours. I usually start doing a few sketches and, after approval, proceed with the colours.

I loved working with Martina. She is very talented and totally understood my vision for this passion project of mine. She also accepted feedback graciously and was super timely with her responses even though we live a world away from each other. I would recommend her to anyone and hope to work on other projects with her as well.

Martina was great to work with. She understood my vision and brought it to life with her skills and expertise. She's amazing with following directions and her art work is very good. I hope to work with her again on future projects.

Martina was a joy to work with -- professional, prompt, and delivered early. Her illustrations were top notch and she made sure to involve me in the process so that I received the perfect graphic. Highly recommended.
