Elena, 1998, Genoa.
My drawing style reflects my character and the way I see my surroundings, as well as being a reinterpretation of the main sources of personal inspiration, ranging from viewing shorts and animated series for children to fashion and lifestyles of other eras and nations, without renouncing the contemplation of works belonging to my favorite artistic currents.
My interest in drawing has been evident since the days of kindergarten, then continuing to cultivate it as a pastime until it becomes a passion.
I never had any doubts about the choice of the artistic high school, thus attending the "Liceo Artistico Statale Paul Klee Barabino" in Genoa with the specialization "Figurative arts".
Parallel to my studies, I learned to use a self-taught graphic tablet, trying to replicate the manga style.
In 2017, once I graduated, I continued my artistic studies at the "Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti" in Genoa with the address "PAI Design Artistic Businesses", taking the exams until 2018: this year I began to create the first designs for a line of merchandise proposed in the main Italian comic and videogame conventions.
In 2019 I completed the tattoos course, with relative sanitary qualification, at the "AreaDomani Professional Academy" in Genoa.
In the same year, in Pordenone (PN), FAROUT opened its doors, an independent clothing and accessories store for which I produce designs and graphics for the main product line for sale.
In 2020 I began to manage the publication of my illustrations on the web with greater consistency, also deciding to open my shop online , in which I propose handmade products made by myself, also starting to participate craft and design fairs.
I also took part in the creation of the illustrations for a board game, with release scheduled for 2022.
In 2021 began the collaboration with the Municipality of Pordenone (PN) for the realization of a project financed by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, aimed at the urban redevelopment of the City Center through the creation of mural paintings on the external walls of historic buildings.
In the same year I participated in the creation of an illustrated book for children, drawing all the illustrations: it will be published independently in spring 2022.
In 2022 I was included in the SOLO - 100 Italian female illustrators and SOLO - children's illustration vol.1 magazines, published by the Psicografici Editore publishing house.
In April 2022 I collaborated in the creation of Studio Felce: in particular, I take care of the illustrative section.
