I’ve loved drawing since I was a kid, and was very influenced by Japanese animation from the 1960s to the 1970s. I love it. The world is full of dark news and I want to make a lot of fun and interesting things in the world through my painting. My painting was accepted by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair in 2017 and a picture book was published in November 2019.
