I’m pleased to announce our participation in the group exhibition SOFT CITY, at Schloss Biesdorf, Berlin.
For this show I collaborated with a great artist, my art sensei, and last but not least my husband, Yukihiro Taguchi. We have been all around the east neighborhood of Berlin, Marzahn-Hellersdorf, drawing and shooting a stop-motion animation video, watching the city through a glass window…got curious? Come to see our short movie and installation at the exhibition!

I have some big news!!!
On the 7th June I will go to Okinawa for about 2 months, that’s my first art residency and I am so happy that will be in the wonderful island in the south-south-south of Japan, as a Sicilian I kind of feel connected to Okinawa…SOUTH ISLANDS POWER!!!
I am honored to take part to a great theater project with my illustrations, and collaborate with great people there to create the scenography. I am so excited and looking forward to being there.
The show will be in the end of July in the Garaman Hall of Ginoza. I will post more details about it very soon.
And now let’s come back to work!

Here we are again, Berlin! I was one month in Japan and just came back to reality…
It was a great time and time flied faster then I imagined.
I came back full of new ideas and energy to immerse myself in my new projects! Now it is a count down to Bologna Children’s Book Fair, I’m working on couple of new books and I will update the progress here and on my social networks.

In the while enjoy the Okinawa mermaid 🙂
Drawing one page every day and the first sketchbook is finished!
Check out all my daily drawings here: Diario Illustrato vol 1.
Some crazy interesting stuff comes out when you free your hand from the anxiety of doing the perfect drawing 😉
It happens always.
I take a brush and I draw whatever in the first sheet of paper I find close to me and …. TADAAN! Waoh, it’s really a nice one!
Then I try to draw it again and better, and the result? It is always worst.
That’s why the second time I want to create the perfect drawing, I try an excessive control on my hand, so that I’m scared to wrong and fail. And the final effect is artificial, not natural, bad.
What I need is to make free my drawing of the fear of not being able to make the perfect piece, I have to learn to make beautiful mistakes.
So I start an illustrated diary, full of daily sketches, doodles and scratches to feel free to draw, experiment and find a new way to put in the paper all the mess I have in my mind, but with no care.
Drawing without too much thought. That’s it.
It has been a while from last the time that I updated my Etsy shop. So today I uploaded this vintage dish, made in DDR, I painted it last year with a hippie-gipsy-woman illustration, with her delicate flowers crown.
What? You were just thinking about a bohemian touch for your kitchen? Then you definitely need this dish 😉
Check out my shop for more ceramics and art!
Happy new year to everyone!
Back to Berlin after had spent a December escaping the cold winter, before in Hong Kong – I fell in love with this city in a way that I couldn’t never imagine – and then in my beloved homeland, Sicily.
But I couldn’t escape forever, so now it’s time to come back to the cold reality and, I have to say, I missed Berlin! So let’s start the 2017 with a lot of new exiting projects!
Have a look to my fresh uploaded works:
- These cute wedding bowls I did for three couple of friends.
- Watercolor sketches I painted in Barcellona, inspired by the autumn.
- And some fashion portraits for a friend who had a genial idea about a very chic salad bar.
And lot of new stuff is boiling in the pot. Stay tuned!
