Hi! I’m Simona.
I’m a freelance illustrator and animator.
I am strongly obsessed by my passions: draw, philosophy, travels.
I believe in the power of intuition in making choices.
I spend my time creating a visual imaginary that is conceptual and metaphoric.
I’m looking for powerful colors to communicate effectively.
I’m available for new commissions and licensing existing images.

I love to draw and travel. As a result, I pursue avenues which allow me to do both: work and explore new countries.
I lived in Turkey, Netherlands and Spain. At the moment I’m based in my country, Italy.
I obtained bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design and Masters degree in Visual and Multimedia Communication Design at Sapienza, University of Rome, and Postgraduate Diploma in Creative Illustration and Visual Communication Techniques at Eina, university of Barcelona. I was awarded a scholarship at Istanbul Technical University, and apprenticed in a video animation studio in Utrecht, after which I interned in a graphic design studio in Barcelona. At the moment I’m attending Mimaster in Milan.
