I'm Francesca Calvi, a self-taught Illustrator and Surface Pattern Designer working from my home studio in a small town near Milan, Italy.

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 with the natural world.

When I'm not drawing, I like gardening, doing yoga, reading, and travelling.

For Licensing and Collaboration, check out my Portfolio, and if you feel we are a good fit, let's get in touch. I’d love to hear from you!


This is me!
