I’m Lorena Spurio, an italian illustrator based in Rome.
I was born in Calabria but then I lived in Madrid, Barcelona, Turin and Milan.

I studied literatures and art history and then I fell madly in love with illustration.
Proud alumni of Mimaster Illustrazione 2022 (Milan).

I draw and listen to Miles Davis music almost all of the time.  Also a natural wines drinker and a books, graphic novels and comics lover.  I listen to a lot of podcasts.

I have a strong interest for human figures and how to convey feelings into illustrations, always experimenting with color combinations and composition. I also love to draw short comics and portraits.
