I was born in 1989, just outside Milan (Italy). I have adopted the pseudonym "Linnet Rose" for my artwork. I have been drawing ever since I could first hold a pencil and I have always had a real passion for art and drawing. I am also very interested in antiques, travelling and taking care of animals. When I was 14, I chose a high school that specialises in art in order to learn more about art and improve my technique. I always felt I had an artist inside me waiting to escape, I just needed to learn how to express myself. Since then I have had the opportunity to develop my own artistic style and I feel my studies have provided me with some great skills, especially in the field of Graphic Design. I won my first contest in Spring 2008 designing curtains for the textile company Astra Nova S.p.A . Now I’m studying at Brera, the Academy of Fine Arts of Milan. I have had some experience as a photomodel.
