I'm a freelance illustrator based in London. Being originally from Puglia, the Heel of Italy, I’m in love with the sun and the sea, which I really miss sometimes, and I recall their beauty in my illustrations with an energetic use of yellow and turquoise.
Working with both digital and classic watercolour techniques, I like to combine the two and develop a unique and bold style.

I like to illustrate characters who are daydreaming, enjoying the moment, feeling good about themselves, and I love to transform these good feelings into illustration and to communicate them to those who look at my work.

I illustrate everything connected to women empowerment, gender equality, diversity, and capturing the essence of music, which I love listening to live in tiny hidden music venues around London.
When I’m not working you can find me there, with my sketchbook and my dancing shoes. In fact, my passion for jazz and swing dance gives a touch of vintage flavour to my colour palette and style.
I'm an excellent visual communicator, able to condense feelings and emotions into just a few lines of drawing.
In 2021I started teaching illustration on the global e-learning platform Skillshare with my debut class ‘How to transform emotion into illustration’, receiving a great response and really positive feedback on my teaching technique.​​​​​​​

I'm globally represented by @illoagency and am a proud member of @thewomenwhodraw, @cluster__illustration and @theaoi, all of which promote diversity, equality and community.

Illustration can be powerful, so I like to illustrate to raise awareness on causes I care about and to help my community. With these ideals, I’m a co-founder together with Silvia Pellegrino of Coffee Grounds — an artistic project that combines creative writing and illustrations; a space where people of all kinds can share their experiences, memories and musings and see them transformed into illustrated short stories. www.coffeegroundsproject.org
