Sumi is a magenta-haired illustrator based in Italy. She was born in Ravenna in 1990 and from that moment she thought that drawing was better than bruising her knees while playing with the other kids. Her artistic studies began on the web right before attending an Art High School in her town. She started working in 2006 as Pixel Artist for 3 dress-up websites. In 2009 she moved to Rome to study illustration and then started to work freelance, illustrating children's books, proposal scenes for young couples (again, lots of bruised knees), and card games.
She now lives with a family of three very rustic dogs, determined not to ever live without Spinones (the dog breed). As a dog owner, she is very passionate towards donating towards animals in need around the world like sanctuaries, WWF, Greenpeace, Australian Bushfire relief associates, and people who cannot afford medical treatments for her pets.
