I am an Anglo/Italian illustrator based in London.

My illustration work usually suggests a narrative and I am passionate about creating characters. I pay great attention to composition design, as it's essential for me that my illustrations have an overall balance and that the viewer be guided to the various elements depicted. I usually start working on an illustration by doing some rough sketching of the characters and the composition. I then create shapes of colour, which I detail with some brush strokes and shading in Photoshop. Sometimes I like to explore the use of textures. The resemblance to traditional media and techniques is really important to me and, although the computer is an essential tool, the finished illustration must have a handmade feel.

I graduated in Illustration from Falmouth College of Art and have used my skills to work on illustration for print animated projects for TV. Most recently I have illustrated a children’s book for Ransom Publishing and contributed to the creation of the BBC animated series The Adventures of Abney and Teal. In this project I worked on different aspects of production, from storyboards to animation, lastly ghost illustrating the series' books through Walker Books. With Walker Books we produced a wide range of titles, including picture books, flap, pop in slots, coloring and sticker books.

Good use of illustration is an essential part of appealing design, and I believe I can create beautiful Illustrations to help the content be more pleasing to the reader, and also more catchy and commercial. Read Less
