Antonella Canavese

My artistic education starts in Piedmont under the guidance of my mother, a painter who passed down her passion to me since I was a child, and perhaps a bit of her love for the painting of the past. I attend my design courses in Milan at the IED (European Institute of Design), where I discover the professional world of illustration, and then in the Tuscan countryside where I live and work, continuing to learn, immersed in a landscape that evokes other times, in an ancient farmhouse among olive trees and woods.

 

I specialized in fine art, concept art, and design for advertisement, packaging, publishing, children's books, stationery, product development, collectibles, children's products, toys, and more.

As an illustrator with a passion for creating art that captures the essence of life's beauty, I've had the pleasure of working on a diverse range of projects over the years. From charming children's books to eye-catching advertising, and from unique collectibles to vintage-inspired prints, my goal has always been to infuse each piece with a touch of soul and warmth.

My vintage style is a reflection of my love for the past and its timeless charm, and I'm grateful that it has resonated with clients who appreciate this aesthetic. I believe that art has the power to bring joy and inspiration into people's lives, and I feel honored to be able to contribute to this in my own small way.

If you're looking for an illustrator who can bring your vision to life with a unique blend of creativity, heart, and soul, I would be delighted to work with you.

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.
