I was born and grew up in Budapest (Hungary) in a house with a large garden where my brother and I used to climb trees, hiding amidst the raspberry bushes and playing in our little house under the cherry tree. I always liked to read stories, to observe and draw nature and people. My favourite fairy-tale was The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen. As a child, I dreamed of becoming a designer. I studied Applied Art in Hungary, after which I moved to a little city in northern Italy where I now live with my husband and our two children. It is thanks to my children that I discovered the world of illustration for children and I began to draw illustrations for books and packaging. I took part in illustration competitions in Italy and abroad, winning various prizes, and this encouraged me to continue along this path. First, I worked as a graphic designer in a studio, now I work at home in my large living room. From the terrace, I can see the roofs of the historic centre of my city and the Alpine peaks.

In my work as an illustrator, I enjoy doing research (history, iconography, objects, symbols and styles etc.), studying nature and making images that make you dream, but also think. If I had to choose another job, Id like to be an archeologist! I work in acrylics, pencil and with digital techniques.

In addition to illustration, I run drawing and illustration courses for children and adults.  I am a member of the Italian Illustrators Association.

I've got no sense of direction, I get lost everywhere! I've got lots of curly hair, flies often get in there and get lost too! I also like making cakes. My friends often tell me: if we had to choose between one of your cakes and one of your drawings, we don't know which we'd prefer!
