View Resume

I really love painting and design, I’ve been drawing since I was a child.
My work approach uften uses visual metaphor to deliver the message in the most interesting way.
I come from a digital illustration background but lately I've been experimenting with watercolours, which I love.
I experiment with visuals for different audiences, and I like to work especially for publishing illustration.
I have a bachelor's degree at the Academy of fine arts in Frosinone, specifically in graphic design, after fulfilling the MA there I attended a MA course at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham.

My digital tools are mainly Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, Paint tool SAI but I can use Illustrator as well, and some basic Indesign. During my Master's degree in 2018 I also experimented with animation, which introduced me to After Effects and cut-out animation.

I’m available for commissions too, just send me an e-mail if you’re interested, I’ll let you know everything you want about me and what I do.
