Serena Ragosta

Italy

I was born in 1976 in the province of Rome, where, since childhood, has two great passions: design and nature, for whose sake after high school I enrolled in the Faculty of Biological Sciences and in 2008, achieving a Master Degree summa cum laude in Ecological biology, followed by certification. Over the years I continued to grow, only by myself, the other great love, drawing; with great difficulty since this activity was increasingly hampered by my family. But the passion there is no remedy. And when I got an honorable mention in the national competition "Draw the Oasis Nature" here is that new energy ignited a light faded but never extinguished.
Today I deal with painting and wildlife art . I am also involved as an illustrator and freelance graphic. Curious and careful observer, I like to draw any kind of subject, with particular passion for animals, domestic and wild. I also love to take portraits, painting mostly in watercolor. But curiosity and desire to experiment stretch in the 'use of other techniques such as oil, tempera, acrylic, graphite and colored pencils, charcoal, painting on glass and mirrors, china. Always open to any kind of cooperation to share and pass on my passion, I find himself in drawing my personal transition to the realm of nature, and the peace and harmony that she instills in the very act of painting.
