"I'm Rossana and I always had a passion for drawing and illustration. I love any kind of art, music, movies, animation, photography, nature, silence, noise, underground cultures and talk to people... I was always been attracted by the dark, gothic and fantasy art and literature and my inspiration comes from legends, fairytales, stories, dreams, nightmares... Essentially I always try to give life to my imagination! "
