After graduation at "Comics School in Milan" founded by Giuseppe Calzolari, I left the comics path to dedicate my time to illustration, so I started expressing my creativity with traditional media (both black & white and color) then progressed towards the use of computer graphics driven both by curiosity and the desire to improve my knowledge and progress my skills in new fields. I'm working in the field of kids publishing since 2001, working with traditional editors, toys company and individuals too. Beside the creation of illustration referred to every target or genres, I work as colorist for comics and for different partners.
