Hi, I'm Jess!

I'm a freelance illustrator from Italy based in London. 
I worked as Graphic Designer for applications and website for about 8 years, never missing the opportunity to express my own creativity through digital illustrations, mascots and emojis.

In 2018 I became a freelancer to focus on what I love most: illustration.
I worked on several children's books and in September 2019 I started the Children's Book Illustration MA at the Cambridge School of Art. My dream is to write and illustrate my own stories. 

With Jess Was Here I aim to explore new visual languages and get closer to the people through what I really love.

I love to create a connection with people through my fun, colourful and funky characters and where possible, I try to minimise my environmental impact through the use of recycled material and plastic-free packaging.

I love being surrounded by art in my everyday life. This is why I decided to create not just art prints, but also accessories, stationery and apparel. Recently I've started to design more wearable products because I love the idea of bringing fun into people's lives and make products that I can personally use everyday.
