Maria Cardelli

Illustrator, designer and artist 

Hi, I am an illustrator, artist and designer from Rome, Italy.

I have painted and designed my all life, it is my passion and I love to create new things and experiment with various media. After leaving Rome I lived in New York for 15 years. There I worked as a footwear designer while continuing my fine art work and taking part to art exhibits. As my work entailed extensive traveling, when my daughter was born I transitioned into illustration. That was 21 years ago. 

I eventually moved back to Europe and I am now in the Netherlands. 

I love working with other creatives on new projects and I have never missed a deadline. I can deliver my artwork digitally anywhere, therefore do not hesitate to get in touch if needed! 

My clients include Cosmopolitan, Vogue, The Times, The Boston Globe, Time out NYC, The NYC Times, Shurman Design, Penguin Group, Bio, Architectural Digest, Telecom, Ritzenhoff and others...

I took part to various art exhibits in both the USA and Europe and my illustration work was selected for publication in Illustration Now! published by Taschen, 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide and my paintings appeared in International contemporary masters Vol.5 and the Biennale of Modern Art.
