    Ciao! I am an Italian passionate about storytelling, design, and historical fashion. I create expressive art and stories that impact people in a meaningful way, while working and learning alongside creative people. I have a BFA in Animation/Illustration from San Jose State and have worked on creating illustrations and designs that highlight appealing characters and immersive worlds that visually captivate the imagination. My experience includes: - Pixar Outreach Program (Fall 2019) - Mentorship from Warner Bros. Animation (from 2015 to 2020) - Illustrating and creating a 70 page pitch bible of characters, props, and story - Interning at FireGraphics LLC, providing visual forensic evidence to legal cases Growing up in Italy led me to develop my abilities to widely grasp different languages and understand people’s experiences to hone my personal outlook towards a global context. My knowledge of illustration and animation mediums enhance my creative skillsets through thinking outside the box and my deep passion for art.

    Graphic design is a very complicated area to work in. All people have different tastes and sometimes it is quite complicated to create a good looking design that satisfies my client. So, before starting working on a new project I prefer to find out as many details as possible about my clients' expectation concerning the design I'm going to create. I also understand that sometimes it is necessary to create more than one version of some design. Updates are necessary part of our work and I do not mind to improve my images if my client think that they are need to be improved. After all, he or she is the one I am creating images for :). So I can guarantee you that all the images that you receive from me will be high quality and meet all your requirements.

    Hi there! Do you have a character you’re just dying to see on paper? Or a project you’ve been itching to complete, but can’t quite get there on your own? Too often have you been frustrated with seeing something so clearly in your head, but somehow just can't translate it onto the page? If that sounds like you- I’m here to help! I’m a seasoned illustrator and graphic designer who specializes in comics, cartoons, and character design. With a background in traditional art, I moved into digital illustration about ten years ago and am well-versed in a handful of programs, though I mainly favor Procreate. With it, I’ve been steadily creating my own graphic novel project- Caffeine Bloodstream- which has taught me so much about character design, novelization layout, and storyboarding. Outside of that, I’ve gotten most of my experience from commissioned and contracted work, making fanart and original content for various clients. Most recently, I made product labels for my last job, Slime Fantasies, where I learned how to properly format using Adobe inDesign as well as lead a professional project from start to finish. My lifelong passion is visual storytelling, and I would be honored to use my decade of experience to help you see your creative visions come to life! So let’s have fun, and make some beautiful art together! -Experience with Procreate, Photoshop, Adobe Creative Suite, traditional art mediums -Background in commissioned artworks and label art -Please add a personalized note for any proposals -Feel free to reach out to me directly for any questions :)
