Ariel is a young illustrator and comic artist living in Rome, Italy.

She's been saying she would get paid to draw someday, ever since she was 12 - and that started to happen about five years later.

By now she's been working for Mondadori, has done food illustration for gourmet events, various comics for FilthyFigments and she has collaborated as an interpreter at the prestigious Idea Academy, where she had the pleasure to work and study with the great teachers of the industry: Anthony Cristov, Nathan Fowkes, Gianluca Garofalo, Jim Moore, Julia Sardà.

She hopes one day to have hair so long it touches the floor, to catch every Pokémon, and to be able to leave her mark on the world by leaving marks on paper (and on screen).

Co-founder and President of ATTACCAPANNI PRESS, small indie editing label publishing Anthologies on interesting and diverse themes with both seasoned professionals and talented beginners in comics and illustration.
