Who Illustrated Diabetes Doesn't Stop Maddie!

Maria Luisa Di Gravio

Hi! My name is Maria Luisa, I was born in Rome in 1991, where I still live and work as a freelance illustrator. I work from my studio where I spend most of my time but when I’m not working I can be found

  • dream version: outside in the woods, around European cities.

  • honest version: on the sofa watching Netflix or reading a book, in bookstores spending the money I earned, by illustrating children’s books, buying other children’s books.

I like to drink tea and to draw furry and pointed nose animals :)

    I hope readers with Type 1 diabetes will understand that Type 1 doesn’t define them, but is a part of them, and that they are never alone.
