Barbara is an illustrator based in Italy, who has her work published in the UK, Italy, the US, Korea, Australia and in co-editions all over the world.
Her clients include Usborne, the BBC, Bloomsbury, Harper Collins, Lion Hudson, Ladybird, Franklin Watts and many others.
She especially likes working for little children, inventing funny animals of all sorts.
Her two sons are all grown up, so she enjoys doing workshops and presentations in museums, schools, libraries, bookshops and festivals, where she can still tell stories to little ones.
Her work has been exhibited in collective shows in Italy, Paris and London.
She was selected for the award for Best British Contemporary Illustrators in 2009 and 2010 and for the Illustratori Italiani Annual from 2006 till 2014.
When she’s not illustrating books, she paints and creates the backdrops of children areas for cruiser liners.
She also enjoys theatre practice and contemporary dance.
