Graphic Design, Illustration, Art Direction

I was born in Rome, the Eternal city, great inspiration and magnet for greatest painters, musicians and writers from across the globe for centuries. 

From a very young age I had two passions: Arts and Nature.

After 15 years working as a GFX Designer in a big TV Network I left the city together with my husband, dogs and cats and moved to the countryside, in the heart of the Sabina mountains, determined to start a new career as a freelance … and I did.

I apply my design experience and love for nature not only to my work but also to my everyday life.

In few words, I’m italian, art director, DIY enthusiastic Silk Screen and hand printing crazy obsessed, GFX Design, Illustrations, Packaging and Nature lover.

Life is a journey, not a destination. Enjoy while birds are singing.
