Hey there!

I am Lisa Vannini, an Italian freelance illustrator and concept artist with a degree in Japanese Studies (I decided that I was probably better off as an artist after getting lost on a sacred mountain in Kyoto for 6 hours).

I specialise in everything that is magical, mysterious and out of the ordinary.  In my spare time you'll find me watching Korean horror movies in my jungle-like house with my cat Moka and travelling to remote locations chasing after spooky folk-tales.

Whenever I'm stressed I cope by buying another plant.

For updates, news and to get an insight into my work, sign up for my monthly newsletter: The Illustrated Phases.
