An encounter to understand how an illustrator works: the processes, ideas and style required in creating a tale in images.

She trained at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma and specialised in illustration at the ENSAD in Paris. She has shown her work in Italy, France, Germany and Korea. She has worked as an illustrator and cartoonist for magazines, textile design, advertising, children's books and strip cartoons, She has published her work with some of Italy's leading publishers including Mondadori, Laterza and Nuovafrontiera Junior, and she has worked with Ladybird, Auzou, ELI, Tunué, Piemme, Il Castoro, White Star, Smemoranda and Zanichelli and with such independent labels as Inuit, Squame, Crisma and Chicken Broccoli.
