I’m Rubina Barbieri, an Italian illustrator and designer with a love for everything related to
nature and silence,
portraits and comics, minimal culture and artisans handworks.

I spend my time drawing everywhere, creating illustrations for clients, and developing personal projects (mostly female portraits).

My goal for 2020 is to focus on storytelling and to expand my visual research in comics design and editorial projects.


I was born in Florence (Italy) in 1989.  I discovered my passion for art and illustration in the first years of my childhood, when nobody could stop me from drawing everyday.

After graduating from a design school in 2016, I started working as a graphic designer in different fields (logo design and brand identity, packaging and communication). 

After some years, I realized that my calling in life was illustration and focused on with it, even though I have never lost interest in other design areas.


Since then I have been developing personal projects like self-publishing and handmade objects. I also create illustrations and comics for clients.


I like traveling, taking photos, walking in tha nature, eating biscuits and stalking vintage markets.
