Naida Mazzenga

Naida Mazzenga is an Italian freelance illustrator who settled in Barcelona where she currently lives and works.

She loves travelling and getting lost, seeing new worlds and learning about new perspectives. A recurring theme in her drawings are nature and plants, which help her to create imaginary and fantastic worlds. The use of bright colours is a feature of her work, influenced by her passion and practice in risograph printing. 

In recent years, she has been selected twice as a finalist for the CCBF "Golden Pinwheel" award and once for the BCBF illustrators' exhibition
