I am Aurora, an Italian author and illustrator. I was born in Carbonia, a small town in Sardinia. I love to travel, in fact I lived in many different cities such as Milan, Bologna and Edinburgh where I studied psychology, art psychotherapy and theatre. I also lived and worked in Cambridge (UK) where I graduate from the MA programme in Children’s book illustration at the Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University. I work from my studio, where I use a combination of hand drawn and digital techniques to create my illustrations. When I am not drawing I love to cook, study Japanese and ride my red bike.
