Ilaria was born in 1984 in Prato, near Florence. She studied at the Nemo NT Academy of Digital Arts and attended several specialized courses in illustration with Gabriel Pacheco, Pablo Auladell and Linda Wolfsgruber.
Since 2012, she has worked as a freelance author and illustrator for various publishing houses and advertising agencies.
She works digitally, but also with traditional techniques such as etching, drypoint and screen printing.
Ilaria currently lives in a small house in the woods with her two cats. She loves writing stories and drawing the strange characters that inhabit them, taking long nature walks, and growing tasty vegetables.
