Tiziana Longo was born in 1980 in Catania, Sicily, and since she was a child she loved to draw. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in her city. In 2010 Tiziana attended her first illustration course and then some workshops with well-known illustrators. She has published books with Italian and international publishers. Tiziana is fascinated by the traditional illustrative techniques but prefers the digital technique: her and her tablet are inseparable. When she illustrates, two elements are necessary: dark chocolate and music (especially the melancholic kind, which she finds very inspiring). When she isn’t illustrating, Tiziana works as a digital colorist, graphic designer and hosts drawing and painting classes for children and adults.
