Francesca Resta was born in Brescia, Italy, in 1983. She now lives near the Lake Iseo with her partner and a turtle.
Although painting is now her job, it is also her first and greatest passion. She decided to make it her profession quite late in life. As a child she was a great fan of Jurassic Park.
‘The Sword of Shannara’ changed her life when she was 12 and since then she has been a big fan of fantasy books, so becoming a fantasy artist was a natural step for her.
Francesca attends as many art workshops, lessons and meetings as she can, especially if the teacher’s art is extremely far from her own path – she likes to be pushed out of her comfort zone!
She chose digital painting as her primary artistic technique because it allows her to follow her natural flow while creating an image. Francesca is always playing around with new techniques and different media for her personal works or sketches.
