Ever since I was a child I’ve enjoyed drawing, collecting stupid things, practising pareidolia (the ability to see meaningful patterns in random objects). At present, I draw, I collect stupid things, and I am world champion in pareidolia. I live in Offida, a medieval village in the centre of Italy with two red hungry cats in a house that looks like the tower of a castle.
When not drawing, I run creative workshops and play theatre with the company “7-8 chili”. I graduated from Academy of Fine Arts, attended a postgraduate course at the European Institute of Design and a Master degree in children illustration.
In 2010 my first book is published.
I love making graceful and evocative images that leave something unsaid, finding the right balance between colours and forms, negative and positive space. I love paper collages, engraving and cannot do anything without my precious pencil – hoping it won’t be lost among cats and all sorts of books.
I wish I could draw as fast as my thoughts go.
