CIAO! I'm Cat and I wear Black

I’m an eclectic chick, a freelance VISUAL ARTIST based in Tuscany, Italy. 
I graduated at IUAV – Venezia , then at the College of Arts – University of Edinburgh. Over the past ten years, I’ve curated visual, editorial and brand identity projects for a wide range of clients like corporates, design and architecture firms, communication and social media agencies, the book industry and art events. Together with my collaborators, I deliver high quality design services.

Custom illustrations and graphics

Every illustration tells a story. I work with mixed media techniques, ranging from traditional watercolour, inks and acrylics to digital painting and inking. I create crisp illustrations on commission and graphic patterns for editorials, retailers and manufacturers. Surface designs, repeated patterns or stand alone illustrations work great for Textiles, Clothing companies, Wallpaper, Rugs, Giftwrap, Stationery, Dishware.
