Beatrice Tinarelli  (Bologna, 16th June 1978)

I was born in Bologna, where I grew up and still live and work as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer since 2001.
I draw and paint ever since I can remember, I see faces everywhere, I gather pencils, I collect vinyl,
I like watching the lightning during a thunderstorm and I wish it were always Winter.
As you can see from the picture above, I am also a long time DJ (20 years!) and I have lived my whole life in music.
When I grow up, I will be an astronaut.
