Who I am and what I do.                                                                     Bambolina Chiara Moriconi




I was born in 1985. My father's Italian and my mother's Spanish. I live in Rome where I studied Spanish and English Translation at La Sapienza University. I am now getting my PhD in European Literature. I have always loved drawing and painting, but the graphic tablet I unexpectedly received as a present a few years ago finally unleashed all the colors of my imagination. My love for drawing has been much influenced by my studies of literature, and many of my characters represent my favourite poets and their works of art.

" Il bianco e nero di una pagina di un libro si illumina di colori grazie ai suoi disegni... Vi invito a scoprire il suo mondo poetico e colorato, ironico e magico... "
