Antonella Canavese

AC2.jpg

My artistic journey began in Piedmont, where my mother, a painter, instilled in me a love for art from a young age. I honed my skills at the IED in Milan, discovering the world of illustration. Now, I call the Tuscan countryside home, where I continue to learn, surrounded by the beauty of the past in an old farmhouse among olive trees and woods.

I specialize in fine art, concept art, and various design projects, from advertisements to children's books and collectibles.

I have mastered techniques such as watercolor, oil, and gouache, and over the years I had to learn how to improve my skills with digital painting.

But I try to keep my vintage-inspired style, which is a reflection of my soul, and I'm grateful that it has resonated with clients who appreciate this aesthetic. 

And I love animals. A lot. They truly inspire me and are one of my favorite subjects, together with flowers and nature.

Resume

I was born in Turin and graduated with an illustration degree from the European Institute of Design in Milan. I now live in the beautiful Tuscan countryside near Pisa. During my studies at IED, I started working with companies in the editorial, advertising, and traditional animation industries. I lived and worked in Milan for a few years before moving to Tuscany, where I now work as an illustrator, concept artist, and licensor of my artworks. In recent years, I have worked in a variety of fields, including advertising, publishing, concept art, stationery design, product development, collectibles, children's products, toys, arts and crafts, and more.
