Who am I?
My name is Ilaria, ten years ago I left Italy to work as interior designer in The Netherlands. In 2015 I quit my job in Amsterdam to travel for a few months in Asia. I still think that was the best choice I've ever made. Since then I've moved to Eindhoven, in a small lovely house with the only person in the world able to always be in a good mood, Mr. Nice Guy. My trip in Asia opened infinite worlds to me, it made of me a respectful observer of life and it showed me that there is not good without bad, no light without dark, magic happens everywhere if you're able to see it. Short after my trip, I started drawing a serie of illustration that I named 'Bright Shadows'.
I am the proud mama of my little girl Nora and of my two beautiful books:
'Ila's vrienden' (2018)
'De kleine schatzoeker' (2020)
I currently live and work in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, I sell my products in different shops and I work as freelancer illustrator and interior designer.
Feel free to contact me for any questions regarding my illustrations, I would be glad to talk with you.
Bright Shadows are worlds where children are safe, where the darkness isn’t dangerous.
Children can be free to live their dreams, to fly, to breathe underwater, to travel and meet the unknown.
The magic light and their animal friends always protect them from their fears,
allowing them to fully enjoy each single moment, to see only the beauty of life.
