Morena Forza was born in 1984. She lives in Milan with her two cats and a hound dog but she secretly dreams about moving to the countryside, in the moor. She really loves colours but all of her pets are in greyscale. She works as an illustrator specialising in the children’s market, with her work appearing in trade, picture books and educational books, magazines, greeting cards, apps and digital media. Morena worked as a pixel artist between 2003 and 2008, so she learned to love the tiniest details in her drawings. She left in 2009 to pursue illustrating full time and she hasn’t stopped drawing since. Favourite jobs: greeting cards, apps and picture books. Worst nightmare: working as a visualiser.
