Denise was born in Empoli, a town near Florence Italy.

She decided to pursue the visual arts, graduating in advertising and graphic design.

In 2017, she took a visual design course at Nemo Academy of Visual Arts that introduced her to the world of illustration.

Denise creates fantastic worlds and sometimes “halfway” worlds.  She finds that it is through an altered world that leaves space for an imagination that represent life at its fullest.
