Being born in the summer of 1986, I am an illustrator from the Italian Riviera. My studio is bursting with sun light, paper scraps, comics and brushes. It's quite messy actually. I love blending colours on a (broken) dish, travelling by bike and letting my immgination to take off and come back creating colourful worlds to make our lives more vibrant. They are home to weird, and often grumpy, creatures. To tell my stories, I use both traditional and digital tools, with a preference for gouache. Since 2018 I work with Lisciani Group on the illustration of several children's games of the Ludattica brand. Since long before that I draw and take part to illustration competitions, sometimes I won, sometimes I bumped into fortunate encounters. You can find more info about prizes and awards below. You can also take a look to my curriculum, that tells about plasmonics and me too. Surprise! After a PhD in Materials Science and Technology, I worked in nanotechnology research untill 2016, when I became a full-time illustrator. Maybe that's why I love the tiniest, nanosized, details. One day I will finally illustrate the story of a photon and the rainbow. Meanwhile I work on personalised comissions, for babies and weddings, especially, I design characters and logos, I scribble all over the backside of receipts, I portray molecules using vector graphics (flower-shaped, sometimes). Would you like to work with me? Or simply to say hi? Rush to Contacts and drop me a line!
