Overview

Hello!

My name is Martina and I'm an Italian, 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.

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.
