About me

She works as an art director, illustrator and visual artist, graphic designer and drawing teacher. She collaborates with fashion magazines and fashion industry, advertising agencies, design and architecture studios, publishing houses, movie production companies, and privates. Her education has been unusual and personal: Communication Design studies at Politecnico di Milano; four years dedicated to engraving techniques, calligraphy and type design; a long, instinctive and deep study of music and chinese calligraphy. She’s a member of STATTLAB Berlin (ex Statt Bad). In 2017 she talks at TEDx and her speech is about the value of drawing in our society. In 2016 she starts an electronic-music project together with Giacomo Carlone (Mistaken for Magic). In 2014 she starts to do live drawing performances as a body/sign research. In the same year she starts to use drawing as an education tool, developing her own teaching method. Starting from this year she teaches in courses and workshops (sketching, storyboard, drawing, team buolding) dedicated to privates and Companies.
