About me


Following her graduation as an accountant, she decided to have a change of scenery and to guide her future to her real passions. For this reason, she moved to Milan where she attended IIF (Istituto Italiano di Fotografia), graduating with honors. Since 2011, she works as a freelance photographer shooting ADV campaign for several clients including Fassi Gru S.p.A. and AS Hair & Make-up. She participates to some collective exhibitions organized by IIF, including an exhibition during Milan Image Art Fair, one of the most important trade fair for Arts&Photography. She enrolled to the 3-year period of Graphic Design&Art Direction at NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano), earning a Bachelor's degree (110 and honors) which allows her to acquire some essentials skills to approach the world of audio-visuals. Since 2015, she works for Cicciotun as Visual Developer and 2D Animator creating commercial films through various techniques including motion graphic, traditional animation, stop-motion, cognitive animation and live action.
