I am a freelance illustrator based in Milan, Italy. I enjoy creating illustrations and bringing stories to life paying a lot of attention to details. I started my way in illustration with the wall paintings for bars, restaurants and some private clients. Now specialize in illustrating picture books, but I also enjoy working on such projects as educational materials or board games for children.

I love using fresh colors and different textures in my work, while working in digital technique I always try to imitate life materials. I think that good communication is very important when working with clients. I am always open to any feedback and try to find the best solution on every stage of the working process.
