Silvia Oriana Colombo was born in 1972, near Milan, Italy.
When she was a child drawing was her passion but, at a certain point, she took a different path, getting a masters degree in Literature and Philosophy at the Università Statale in Milan. During her working career she has done different jobs: for many years she was a film critic, writing for newspapers and she has taught Film History and Critique in high schools and at University.
Since 2004 she also collaborates with a social cooperative educating teenagers and family with small children.
After twelve years she restarted drawing in 2012. She attended Giovanni Manna and Linda Wolfsgruber’s classes at the International School of Illustration in Sàrmede and in 2015 the workshop of Mauro Evangelista at Mimaster.
She currently lives and works in Milan, Italy.
