Hi, my name is Ilaria!
I was born in Rome, Italy, in the 80’s. Since I was a little girl my biggest love was painting and drawing. 
In 2014 I moved to Berlin with my husband and my two cats, and after several years of working as a graphic designer, I decided it was time to pursue my biggest childhood dream. Now I work as a children's book illustrator for clients all over the world from my cozy home studio. I also own a little Etsy shop where I sell my illustrations.
Coloured pencils, Posca Markers and Copic Ciaos are just some of my favourite art supplies. I like to sketch my illustrations with just a pencil and then add vibrant colours digitally with the iPad or my Cintiq tablet.
When I’m not illustrating, I like to enjoy the precious time with my little boy, explore the city, meet good friends, lose myself in bookstores (in the children's books section of course!), eat pizza or just chilling at home watching a good tv-series. Just so you know, I am obsessed with Friends!
