I’m Francesca Calvi. My artist name is Yupcat. I’m a self taught Illustrator and Surface Pattern Designer working from my home studio near Milan.

I create artwork mostly led by curiosity and playfulness, inspired by animals, plants and children. I often find it easy to come up with new ideas. I also love poetry and I’m an environmental activist. We are all part of nature and I’d like my work to help rediscover and strengthen our connection.

My artwork is available for Licensing, check out my Portfolio and if you’d like to collaborate, please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you!


This is me... with my secret assistant... Brughy... don't tell anyone!
