About Laura Toffaletti

Laura Toffaletti has worked as an illustrator for many publishers, creating books for children, handwritten, illustrated recipe books, calendars and much more. She has always been interested in traces, signs, characters, and in 1994 she encountered the Associazione Calligrafica Italiana. Since then she has cultivated her interest in calligraphy, together with the activity of illustrator, and she has perfected her skills thanks to the teachings of Italian and foreign master calligraphers (Brody Neuenschwander, Thomas Ingmire, Giovanni De Faccio, Francesca Biasetton). She uses calligraphy with illustration to create her works on paper and canvas, presented in personal and collective exhibitions, in which ink and watercolour mingle, illuminated by touches of gold leaf.
