About the artist

Italian painter and illustrator Rossella Paolini was born in Trieste, a city of sea and woods, and lives in the historic heart of the city between a medieval castle and a Roman forum. She draws from a very young age, loving the illustrations of storybooks and animated films by Walt Disney.

As a Rossella was passionate about visiting museums, archaeological sites and art galleries and began to paint in oils in the studio of a teacher, a pupil of the famous painter Renato Gottuso. Subsequently in her adulthood she participates and organizes as Art Director various exhibitions in Festivals, Fairs and galleries exclusively on the Fantasy theme. Specializing in illustration for children after attending an international school in Italy, she participates and wins many competitions with exhibitions in Italy and France.

Rossella Paolini creates and dreams in his studio where, in addition to the tools of the trade, she has a vast collection of illustrated books from which she draws inspiration. She has been collaborating for some years with galleries in the United States, Scotland, Portugal and Japan.

Artwork Themes & Subject Matter

Each of Rossella Paolini’s works embodies a meaning and a story. Inspired by the fantastic, occult and mysterious world, she tries to infuse through her works the knowledge learned from studies, books, travels and cinema.

The purpose of her art is to convey amazement, beauty, joy and harmony through female and animal figures, accompanying the observer into a multidimensional enchanted world where mythology, science fiction and fairy tales are another reality.

All her women-dolls have big, dreamy and deep eyes, as they are often depicted in a pop surrealist style, the meticulous details painted with small brushes are his aesthetic signature.
