Elisabetta Ferrero was born in Vercelli, the Italian capital of rice production which is a city surrounded by beautiful countryside, inhabited by a varied fauna. Perhaps her passion for naturalistic drawing comes from this.
She attended IED and Scuola Superiore di Arte in the evocative setting of the Castello Sforzesco in Milan.
Over the years she has collaborated with several Italian and foreign publishing houses and in particular with Ravensburger, for whom she has illustrated many puzzles of dinosaurs, a subject which she particularly loves to draw.
