FRANCESCA BÆRALD - Freelance Illustrator :I was born in Modena (Italy) on the Spring of 1982.
I've spent my first 20 years studying piano,guitar and violin, playing in a few metal bands and recording also a cd.
My passion for drawing never faded away and after some experiences as founder of an artistic handicraft business, I decided to channel my passion for RPG, videogames, fantasy and sci-fi starting in 2010 to study Illustration at Scuola Internazionale Comics in Reggio Emilia.
I finished art class with full marks and honours in 2013.
I worked as a traditional colorist for the italian comics 'Agenzia Incantesimi Reloaded'. I've recently done the book cover and some paintings for the italian fantasy/sci-fi book 'Tales from Helleborya'. I've also realized illustrations for the RPGs 'Shah Mat' and 'Forest Keeper'.
I've won first place in 'Succhiasangue Contest' and 'Sexy & Chaotic contest' in 2012.
