My name is Francesca and I am a freelance illustrator.
I’m Italian, now living in a miniature flat in London.
I’m a fantasy and sci-fi reader and my love for illustration starts with my love for books. Since my early teens, I’m interested in book covers and I used to challenge myself to recognize the artist of the covers of the books in the shelves.
I’ve studied art and illustration wherever I could, from private painting lessons to more organized schools, to intensive workshops held by some of my artistic heroes. And from a lot of self-taught practice.
My tools of the trade are Corel Painter and my Wacom tablet, though I also love to paint traditionally and mix the two worlds when the occasion occur.
