Mi chiamo Sara e vivo in un piccolo paese della Val Pellice, sulle montagne piemontesi in provincia di Torino. Lavoro come illustratrice e grafica freelance, occupandomi di editoria narrativa, scolastica, progetti educativi e divulgativi, giochi, comunicazione social e stampata. Ho pubblicato la mia prima illustrazione nel 2006 tramite l’Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti di Torino, dove ho conseguito il diploma di Laurea triennale in Grafica d’arte. Successivamente ho vinto una borsa di studio che mi ha permesso di specializzarmi in Illustrazione pressso l’Istituo Europeo di Design nella stessa città.

Come illustratrice mi occupo di progetti e stili anche molto diversi: copertine, libri scolastici per ragazzi, progetti didattici e scientifici, giochi da tavolo e prodotti digitali. Sono particolarmente portata per la realizzazione di immagini realistiche e/o simboliche dettagliate, per il disegno naturalistico e per la creazione di personaggi espressivi e dinamici di taglio fumettistico, adatti alle pubblicazioni per ragazzi. Utilizzo le tecniche tradizionali più classiche (grafite, china e pittura a guazzo o acrilica), oppure la pittura e la colorazione digitale ed il disegno vettoriale.

Come grafica mi occupo di design di libri ed e-book, brochures, volantini, poster e striscioni, totem pubblicitari, magliette, loghi, biglietti da visita e realizzo icone ed elementi grafici per la comunicazione social ed il web. Utilizzo Photoshop, Illustrator e InDesign.

I miei clienti si trovano in Italia, Inghilterra, Australia e Stati Uniti. Tra i miei clienti italiani ci sono Raffaello Libri, Ibiscus, Il Capitello, Agra Editrice, CLEUP e la Regione Piemonte, mentre a livello internazionale ho lavorato con Pearson (USA), Breakloose Publishing, Griffin+Row (Australia), Communication Across Cultures (UK) e svariati altri committenti aziendali e privati.

Dal 2015 al 2018 ho curato come volontaria il materiale grafico per Italian Climate Network onlus che organizza incontri nelle scuole e partecipa ai negoziati internazionali sul cambiamento climatico.

Oltre a progettare e disegnare, amo camminare in montagna e nei boschi accanto a casa. Coltivo un orto con il mio compagno e pratico a livello amatoriale il nuoto, il ciclismo e lo yoga. Sono fortemente interessata alle problematiche ambientali, alle pratiche di sostenibilità ed all’alimentazione umana in relazione alla salute.

Sara was born in Biella in 1984 and studied in Torino (Italy), 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. After completing her studies, she moved to a small apartment in a beautiful valley of the Italian Alps, shared with her partner and an exuberant dog. From here, she works as a freelance illustrator with clients from around the world, especially from Italy, UK, USA and Australia.

She’s been publishing illustrations for editorial and commercial projects since 2006. She loves to paint and draw detailed realistic and semi-realistic illustrations suitable for book covers, novels, picture books and scientific publications. She creates dynamic and funny characters for educational projects, games and children’s textbooks. She works with traditional techniques like graphite, inks and gouache, and with digital paint and vector programs.

As a designer, Sara creates logos, brochures and leaflets, totems, banners, social content, icons and other web elements, book and e-book layout and covers. She works with Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

Other than drawing, she likes walking in the woods, cycling, swimming and cultivating the family vegetable garden. She also reads, 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. From 2015 to 2018 she designed graphics and illustrations for the 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! >>
