I'm Alice Caldarella. I was born in 1989.
I am an illustrator based in Catania, where I live and work with my beloved cat Matilde.
I studied illustration at the School Officina B5, in Rome.
I cultivate my personal, lifelong education by following workshops; I also pursue a continuous, personal research on the imagery and on the meanings conveyed by the pictures.
I am a fond collector of illustrated books, and I hope I can start publishing my stories too, one day.
I work in both the digital and traditional techniques. Among all, my technique of choice are the crayons: everytime I hold a pencil in my hands I feel the child in me resurface.
Pensieri sott'acqua is a long-term project which develops into home-made products and a whole range of creations. My illustrations can be used in various branches such as publishing, stationery and giftware, bijouterie, advertising and packaging.
I’m always available for information, collaborations and commissions.
