demos mobilia meets Simona Zampa
Born in 1970, Simona grew up in Milano, Italy. She studied at the Parsons New School and the New York Studio School (NYSS) in New York.
Although she first studied economics at college, Simona later decided to follow her artistic call, and while still working in economics, she registered for evening classes in drawing and painting.
Simona is a self-taught artist who started illustrating children’s books in her spare time. Her favorite illustrations were portraits—a subject that has always been her main interest. Alongside her work as an artist, Simona has completed several illustration projects, including a series of children’s books.
Over time, her work as an artist prevailed over that of illustrator. Nevertheless, she still does illustrations for specific projects from time to time.
