Cinzia was born in Milan in 1963. Since graduating in painting at the Academy of Fine Art at Milan, she went on to become a freelance illustrator. Years later, she fled to the countryside not far from the shore, to paint illustrations and take a dip in the sea.
Cinzia specializes in illustrating landscapes, travel, and stories from life. She loves the Venetian and Tuscan painters of earlier centuries but also Picasso, Modigliani, and American illustrators like N.C.Wyeth.
Cinzia’s artwork and watercolor paintings have been shown at many collective exhibitions organized by the Illustrators Association, of which she is a member, and at numerous other exhibitions. The Italian Illustration Annual has recognized her with multiple awards.
When Cinzia isn’t creating art, growing spinach, or making jams, she returns to Milan to teach at the School of Cinema.
