I was born in Rome but grew up in Perth, Australia, where I graduated in european languages and philosophy. After a time spent between France and Spain I settled back down in Rome in 2007.
I decided to discover the world of art and illustration outside of formal institutions, taking inspiration from contemporary art, philosophy, music, children, architecture and people on the street.
Today I make picture books and illustrations for magazines. Sometimes I work on stop motion animation projects with my husband Gianluca.
