All about myself
I was born and raised in Vibo Valentia, a small city in Calabria, Italy. I'm a 21-year-old girl, self-taught/freelance photomanipulator, retoucher and graphic designer. I discovered Photoshop when I was pretty young, I was only 8 years old. Through the years, I've been learning all its features and tools by myself. Finally, when I was 15, I discovered the Digital Art world and started getting into it. I also attended a graphic designing school that learnt me the use of graphic designing in the advertising industry. I'm mostly into dark, fantasy, emotional and conceptual artworks. I've been working for several photographers, models and make up artists from all over the world.
Also, since 2011, my passion for photography has been increased a lot. I'm mostly into portraits and nature shoots, and I'm an official photographer for a no-profit Onlus near my city.
