Paola Minelli, illustrator, painter and graphic designer.

Classical drawing and painting
Ancient techniques with mineral and natural pigments (such as plant pigments, precious stones, gold, etc.)
Creation of digital illustration, both vector and bitmap,  digital graphics press-ready.

Between 1990 to now I created thousands of drawings and paintings, especially for books and magazines, working with agencies and publishers. A significant part of this production was related to illustrations for childrens’ books, but I also collaborated in many marketing and advertizing campaigns for major brands such as Plasmon, Ferrero, Nikon, Fisher-Price and others.
