Here at Advocate we pride ourselves on finding outstanding new talent, Elena Iarussi being no exception. Her uniquely rendered characters and fluid lines would be great for the 0-5 crowd. See more of her lovely work by taking a peek at her Advocate portfolio. In her own words:

"Hello, my name is Elena Iarussi. I was born in 1990 in Chieti, now living in Florence. Ever since I was a child I always had a passion for drawing, but only began to grow my talents in a professional capacity as an adult. I graduated from Liceo Scientific F. Masci of Chieti in 2009. 

At first I didn't think it was possible to turn my passion for drawing into a profession, so I enrolled in the G. D'Annunzio University of Chieti to study literature. I quit my studies in my second year to pursue my dream of illustration and to follow my artistic passion. I enrolled in Nemo NT Academy of Digital Arts in Florence, focusing on entertainment and concept design.

In October of 2014 I attended a Disney master class held by Dreamworks animator Sandro Cleuzo. I graduated in June 2015 and now work as a freelance artist."
