ABOUT

 

Hi, my name is Laura and I’m a freelance illustrator. I love discovering use and costumes of the world, traveling, talking with imaginary creatures, getting lost in my dreams.

Through my work, inspired to folklore and naïf art, I create bridges between cultures, past and present, visible and invisible worlds, in my personal way.

My work is bizarre, different, unusual and very colorful, because I have a child’s soul in an adult body. I am attracted by mysteries, secret gardens, labyrinths and I feel like Alice in wonderland, my inspirational muse. I love very much folk clothing and I draw clothes inspired by traditional fashion of the world, making them sew by tailors known during my travels.

I studied art at University, in Verona, and immediately after graduating, I worked with a local artist, exhibiting my works, especially photos and collages, in different exhibitions. After that, I felt in love with anthropology and Roma culture, so I decided to work in the circus. I worked as a photographer in the circuses Moira Orfei, Medrano, Vienna for some years.
