Francesca Resta was born in Brescia, Italy, during the ‘80s and grew up loving both art and science. After an encounter with the novel “Sword of Shannara”, she has become an avid reader of fantasy and science fiction ever since. In 2016, she received a Silver Award in the Italian Illustrators’ society (AI Annual). Currently living in London, she tries to be plastic-free as possible by removing a lot of plastic in her home and switching it to refillable products. In the past, she participated in another artbook through Astound to help the Nepalese people after a big earthquake called Art for Hope, sponsored by Autodesk.
