Irma Ruggiero is an Italian illustrator and author. Her love of books was cultivated at an early age and thanks to her mother, she learned to turn her thoughts into illustrations. Irma graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, with a project- illustrated book for visually impaired children. Last June, she majored in illustration at the Italian School of Comics. She also loves to write and has many notebooks scattered around the house where she jots down stories, thoughts, and various doodles. Irma’s first children’s book "Un Fantasmagorico Natale" published by Mondadori Ragazzi came out in November. She enjoys working with her dog Lara on her legs, always sketching first with a pencil on her inseparable sketchbook and finishing the illustration digitally. She loves drawing little witches, cute vampires, and sweetie ghosts. She loves to represent a colorful world for children in her illustrations.
