About me

I love making illustrations, comic books, and crafty things. As a kid, I spent every moment drawing, reading, and daydreaming. I loved making moveable, hand-drawn, paper dolls: they were the main characters of the stories I made up!

I actually have no formal art training apart from few painting classes I took a couple of years ago. I've learnt all I know myself.

I works in a very tiny studio filled with children's books, comic books, art books and OOAK ball jointed dolls. My work is mainly anime-styled but also inspired by fairy tales, Art Nouveau, European graphic novels with a penchant for gothic imagery and classical fantasy themes.

My working technique includes watercolors, pencils/pastels and markers with a painting style that often mix all these techniques together. My illustrations have appeared on several books and magazines all around the world, and in 2013 I have been selected for inclusion in Spectrum 20: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art.

For some previews of my ongoing projects or to be informed about my recent art activities, please follow my Flickr gallery, my Instagram, or my Tumblr photo-blog.
