I was born in the heart of beautiful Rome.
From a very young age I used to spend all my pocket money on crafts, paints and anything I could afford. I was a very creative child and always loved spending my time giving new shape to ordinary things.
Even though I have done many interesting jobs it was not what I wanted to do.
Growing up I privately carried on my passion for art and crafts.
One day I was given the opportunity to work for a big clothing company where I learned how to use graphic programs, layouts and a lot more.
I had finally started to do what I liked.
Within a few years I decided to move to London and worked in different stores. I then made the decision to open my first Etsy Shop (InkOnPaperDesign) which has developed into a second Etsy shop (EVLovesDesign) and after few months I have started to build my own web site.
I am now a single mum and live just outside London in a very quite and green area. My windows face over the river Thames and while I design my items I watch people jogging, walking and waiting for the bus. That's when I have my best ideas and I just can't stop myself from writing down notes about new handmade objects to be realised.
Creating is for me like writing or talking. Designing new things, listing new items makes me feel accomplished and happier. I feel the need to see my thoughts take shape and when I sell an item it feels like receiving a kiss or a hug.
I am a very happy person doing what I love and always wanted to do.
I hope to show my daughter that she can follow her dreams too.
I love personalising things because I like the little touches that can be added to anything that surrounds us.
Please feel free to get in touch, if you have a particular project or idea and I will be delighted to offer you my experience.
