About me

Katya Longhi was born in 1984 in Modica, a small town in Southern Italy.
She grew up in Trento and studied at the Art Academy in Florence.

Since then she has studied illustration at Nemo NT Academy of Digital Arts.

When she was a child she drew everything she saw – she has countless drawings of ice cream and Snoopy!

Katya completed several animation and illustration workshops, which she found

invaluable as they helped her to establish her style, and has found the stimulation for her passion.

Katya works digitally but she begins by drawing with pencil on paper.


In her spare time, Katya loves to read and watch on tv fairytales and collect snow globes.
She currently works as a freelance illustrator based in Trento, where she lives with her very own Prince Charming!

She has also exhibited in numerous art exhibitions throughout Italy.

ITA

Sono nata nel 1984 a Modica, una piccola città del sud della Sicilia.

Sono cresciuta a Trento, nel nord Italia, e a 19 anni sono partita per Firenze dove ho studiato all'Accademia di Belle Arti laureandomi, successivamente mi sono iscritta all''Accademia di Arti Digitali Nemo NT dove mi sono diplomata in Illustrazione digitale e tradizionale.

Quanto ero piccola disegnavo tutto quello che vedevo, vedevo Snoopy, disegnavo Snoopy, amavo il gelato, disegnavo il gelato.

Negli anni di studi ho partecipato a diversi Workshop di animazione ed illustrazione ed è stato anche grazie a queste esperienze che ho potuto arricchire il mio bagaglio artistico e che ho trovato il mio stile potendo quindi seguire la mia vera passione!

Lavoro sia su carta che su computer, la tecnica digitale la adoro e fa proprio parte di me, adoro riuscire a creare ambienti ed atmosfere magiche, stelline scintillanti, principi e principesse, luci, texture colori magici e altro ancora.
