I was born and still live in my home land Republic of San Marino. I graduated at the “Scuola del Libro” Art Institute of Urbino (Italy) in the Animation course. I have been working as a children’s book illustrator since 1995 and have illustrated several of them with US, British, Swiss and Taiwanese publishers. Among my clients: Random House, Mondadori, Simon and Shuster, Barefoot Books, Greem Press, Fabbri, Arka, Fatatrac, Europacorp, Macy, Diesel, Houghton Mifflin, Henry Holt, Mc Cann Lowe, United Airlines, Vogue.
In 2008 I worked as a character designer for a French 3d animation project La mecanique du couer directed by Mathias Melzieau and the production of Luc and Silla Besson. My works have been exhibited in prestigious collections all over the world.
