My name is Maria Luisa.
I was born in Rome in 1991, where I still live and work as a freelance illustrator.
My work has taken me across the world with clients from France, England, the USA, Australia, and Italy.
I work from my studio where I spend most of my time but when I'm not working I can be found
dream version: outside in the woods, around European cities.
honest version: on the sofa watching Netflix or reading a book, in bookstores spending the money I earned, by illustrating children’s books, buying other children’s books.
My work can be used for several applications of illustration, such as children's books, covers, packaging, and greeting cards.
If you want to work with me, have any questions, or just want to say hello, contact me!
I had the pleasure to work with:
