Overview

I'm an illustrator from the beautiful Turin, Italy, where I work and live.

I create simple and playful illustrations, in both a conceptual and descriptive way, paying attention to feelings and emotions. I love to make people feel good when looking at my work, from children to adults, and to help the author to feel pride in their work.

As a freelance artist I’ve worked with many magazines (ANORAK, Flow, Illustratore Italiano to name a few) and a wide range of independent publications, including Print About Me, Nurant, Corraini and Quelli del Sabato.

I'm also specialized in illustration for motion graphic and digital/interactive contents.
