Sara lives and woks in a beautiful valley of the Italian Alps. From her small, rustic apartment shared with her partner and an exuberant dog, she works as a freelance illustrator, artist and designer with clients from around the world, especially from Italy, UK, USA and Australia.

She was born in Biella in 1984 and studied in Torino, receiving a Degree in Graphic Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts and a specialization qualification in Children’s book Illustration from the European Institute of Design. Since 2006, she’s been illustrating educational projects, games, textbooks, picture books, novels, and promotional materials. She works with diverse styles and techniques, with a preference for detailed realistic and semi-realistic illustrations. When she can, and if it suits the project, she chooses traditional techniques like graphite or gouache.

Other than drawing, she enjoys outdoor activities like walking in the woods and cultivating the family vegetable garden. Indoor, she reads, watches bad movies, cooks vegan foods and practices an unstable yoga. She’s particularly interested in environmental problems, human health and nutrition, and sometimes volunteers as an illustrator for non profit associations in these fields. At the moment, she creates graphics as a volunteer for the Italian Climate Network.

Sara vive e lavora in un piccolo, rustico appartamento circondato da montagne e boschi in una bella valle alpina della provincia di Torino. Da qui lavora come illustratrice, grafica e artista freelance con clienti italiani e internazionali, e in particolare dal Regno Unito, Stati Uniti ed Australia.

E’ nata a Biella nel 1984 ed ha studiato a Torino, dove ha conseguito il diploma di laurea in Grafica d’Arte all’Accademia di Belle Arti ed ha frequentato il corso di specializzazione in illustrazione per l’infanzia allo IED. Dal 2006 illustra progetti educativi e scientifici, giochi, libri illustrati, copertine e materiale promozionale come magliette, web banner, brochures e poster.

Sara lavora con diversi stili e tecniche, inclusa l’illustrazione vettoriale e tecniche manuali classiche come il guazzo (tempera), la matita e la china, che impiega per illustrazioni ricche di dettagli di soggetto realistico e semi-realistico.

Oltre a disegnare, ama stare all’aperto, praticando escursionismo insieme al compagno e al loro cane esuberante, e coltivando l’orto di famiglia. Quando il tempo diventa brutto, guarda brutti film, legge, sperimenta piatti vegani e pratica uno yoga incerto. Le interessano particolarmente l’ambiente, la salute e l’alimentazione, e a volte svolge lavoro volontario per associazioni che si occupano di questi temi. Al momento realizza grafiche per le attività divulgative dell’ Italian Climate Network.

My clients say...

<< Sara is an amazing illustrator who can work in a number of different styles. I was extremely pleased with the illustration and graphic design work she has done. Everything was perfect and she is a pleasure to work with. Sara, looking forward to working with you again in the future! >>

Michael Stager – Quatio Ltd Pty

<< Sara did a great job on our project and was very communicative. She produced beautiful art on a quick timeline >>

 Debbie Dugdale – Pearson USA 

<< I can’t say enough good things about Sara. Her illustration skills are fantastic, just what we were looking for (vintage scientific illustration style). She was a good communicator, fairly priced her work, and got the job done quickly. I’m excited to work with her again!!!>>

 Christman Hersha – Goldleaf Ltd (USA)

<< Sara did an amazing job with the images we had her draw and was very receptive to changes and critiques. We will definitely use her in the future. >>

Scott Rose – Veterinary Surgery Center of Sarasota (USA)

<< I really enjoyed working with Sara,the illustrator of my book. I was attracted by the diversity of her styles and how she expressed the emotional state of the characters she illustrated. I noted the five pages I wanted to have illustrated along with the one for the cover. But before she did anything, Sara read the book! It’s not a small book, about 125k words. I was impressed that she took the effort to read it cover to cover especially since it’s geared toward 9-12 year olds. Sara started working quickly and the sketches were very close to what I imaged. After just a few edits, we were finished. Sara communicated constantly and we truly worked in a collaborative fashion. I highly recommend Sara as an illustrator, She is very talented, creative and professional! >>
