I Am Nothing But Emotion, No Human Being, No Son, Never Again Son


I’m an italian graphic designer and illustrator. I co-founded KreativeHouse creative studio, Italy. I love design, minimalism and modernism and their contrast with the organic patterns of nature.

I'm a fashion illustrator & printmaker with a refreshing love of nature and magical folk stories. Having spent my childhood in the hills, lakes and wildlife of Italy have formed and infused my work. I love working and experimenting with illustration techniques, textures patterns, abstract design and colours
