Ramona was born in a small town in southern Italy, Salerno, and grew up in close contact with the sea. As a child, she spent her summers in a small town in Lucania, where boredom was the real boot to her
imagination. Growing up, she graduated in architecture at the University of Naples, and then started studying illustration, first in Naples and then in Rome. Her works convey the light-heartedness she remembers as a child, and are always very ironic and funny, like her in my private life. She works almost completely digitally, alternating between the Ipad and graphics tablet, but it is in the pencil sketches that she finds herself every day. Ramona has been living permanently in France and has been a member of the Maison des Artistes association since 2020. She received the Brightness Award in 2021 with her illustration: Shadows Plays. When she’s not working, she likes to spend her days at the seaside reading books or visiting new places with her family. She loves reading science fiction books but also surreal and fantastic stories. Whether she works in a studio or at home, she always listens to lo-fi jazzView Full Bio
