Hi there! I’m Simona, children’s illustrator born in 1988 in Italy, where I work and live with my husband, my baby girl and a red cat. I like cooking, especially cakes, I love ice cream and gardening: my garden is full of colorful flowers, which also find in my illustrations.
Since I was a child I didn't know how to resist at the call of paper and colors, spending hours and hours drawing and letting myself be inspired by the imagination and anything else around me.
I’m graduate at European Institute of Design (IED) in Milan, in illustration and animation and I participated in numerous courses at the International School of Illustration in Sàrmede, with internationally renowned artists. I never miss an opportunity to improve and expand my knowledge in the world of illustration, approaching new techniques and staying updated on digital news in the sector.
I work as a freelance children’s illustrator, especially for the 0-6 years, mainly using digital technique.
I publish with italian and foreign publishing houses like: Edizioni Del Baldo, Gaby Books, Piccolia Editions, Daphne France, Tresei Gruppo Editoriale, Mondadori Scienza, Edigiò and Giunti Scuola.
