We traveled to Rome where I visited the most beautiful works of art. The city influenced my dreams of becoming an artist. Since then, I’ve had a love affair with art…Now, I work as a Creative Director & Illustrator. My experience includes conceptual strategy, design and production for domestic and international products (ranging from packaging to print), catalogs and web. My paintings have been displayed in fine art galleries in Washington DC, San Francisco, and Japan..” Artist, Illustrator, Francesca Benevento, Zia Franny,
