ABOUT




I'm an italian illustrator currently based in Toulouse (France). 
I studied Graphic Design and Visual Communication at ISIA in Urbino and Illustration at Escola Massana in Barcelona.
My illustration style is minimalist, I look for summary in shapes and colors, also the empty spaces are an essential part in my imagines.
At the moment I collaborate with different publishing houses and I take workshops (for children and adults) based on my books.
I also love to create handmade objects, patterns, paint walls and take part in independent and self productions projects.
