My name is Silvia, I have been in the graphic arts and design business for twenty years, and for over a decade I have been devoted to illustration for children and grown-ups. In 2010 I published my first illustrated book for children with Artebambini – Ada Maty, a story sung in different voices – and I create art for educational books with a variety of international publishers.
Very often my work ends up, besides the web or printed books, even on walls: pediatric wards and children’s schools around Italy are decorated with my art. Seeing a child cheered by a sequence of images, especially in the hospital setting, is an experience that warms my heart. The arts play an important role in society and I love knowing my work can be part of that joy and well-being.
The tiniest illustration I made: a 16×16 pixels icon. The largest: a 16×4 meters mural.
I like: colour palettes, tea drinking, yoga, gardening. I dislike: tidy desks.
