Monica Garofalo

“Monica Garofalo was born, lives and works in Trento, a city in northern Italy and deals with illustration and graphics.

Her father was a painter and he conveyed to her the joy and passion for painting, art, and music, teaching her the joy of colours and imagination from an early age; in every picture of the father, there is always a small leaf or a flower designed by her!

She worked for ten years for a Roman publishing house as an illustrator and editorial graphic, with the publication of various illustrated books for children. she is also involved in creative workshops for children, both in public events and in summer facilities, and currently teaches adults a vectorial illustration, graphics and visual communication, at companies and for private individuals.

In her work, she uses various digital software, but she has not abandoned the paper and the colours among which she prefers acrylics and oil pastels. She collaborates with publishers creating illustrations for picture books, fairy tales, and magazine covers. In her spare time, she untangles herself between house cleaning, her three children, her husband, two dogs, and a cat. She likes to sing and for a while, she was a soloist in a band.”
