About me and Ciacio

★ STORY
I am Sarah, an Italian illustrator living in the South of France.
I love drawing since I was a child. Graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, now I work in children books' field.
I work in my home in Antibes, a few steps away from the Mediterranean sea. The coast's natural landscape is a great inspiration for my work: watch the short video above!
I like to create poetic and positive images recalling sweet childhood memories and reflecting my great respect for Nature.
Prints and original paintings, wooden letters, travel sketchbooks… all the items in the shop are designed and created by me, mainly using pencils and painting on paper and wood.

★ WHAT DOES "CIACIO" MEANS??
The word "Ciacio" (English pronunciation: "CHACHO") that I chose for the shop has an important meaning for me: Ciacio is the protagonist of my picture books, a character that I created as a tribute to my favourite childhood puppet, a funny mix between bear and rabbit ...a bearbit! ;-)
The real puppet Ciacio has also a blog with his travel's photos:
