Francesca is an artist working with water-color and digital illustration. She lives in Florence and works in a “room of her own” on a sunny terrace full of plants. She focuses on the language of colors, the infinite emotional echoes they generate, and their symbolic meaning.

She has exhibited in Italy and abroad, and her work is part of private collections in Europe and overseas.

Designer

I’m an Italian designer and I love discovering new dimensions and redesigning everyday objects. My imaginative clocks, lamps and unusual vases verge on 2D as they form their own silhouettes. New minimalist entities are created, that seem familiar but are strikingly different.
