Simona De Leo - Designer


I'm an artist-illustrator-painter. My watchword is - Art does not reproduce what we see, rather it makes us see-[Paul Klee]


I am an illustrator with a specific academic knowledge and personal interest on illustration for children.
I love working with children and with everything related to the individual creative growth typical of the childhood world. Thanks to my work experience I have excellent skills in recreational activities organization, involving children in artistic activities and developing their curiosity, imagination and knowledge through art and creativity.
I believe that art, colors and fairy tales are the three essential elements for the proper growth of a child.
Moreover, during my studies I have developed my skills in the artistic techniques regarding painting with more techniques like oil on canvas, acrylics colors, painting on wall and cloth, comics, editorial graphics and web design, which allow me to be competent in computer programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign.
I like everything which is related to art. In my spare time I love making artistic photos, visiting museums and discovering the beauty of the urban architecture simply by walking in the streets.
I am an illustrator, therefore I enjoy spending my time in children libraries, drawing, learning new technique and sharing my knowledge with other people and illustrators in order to improve my artistic and personal skills.
