About Ilaria’s illustrations

Her illustration work is unique, elegant and sometimes surreal. Using the collage and photomontage techniques alongside printmaking techniques her illustrations and animations have the aim to shock and amuse people, stimulating their eyes and mind. 

During the process of collage making she enjoys combining visually stimulating elements to create engaging images, often symmetrical and thought provoking with a keen sense of fashion.
