"I used to work mainly on children's books ,this job became a way for me to stay in touch with my child part,I think it is important to keep in touch with our imagination that is the truest part of us"

Nicoletta Ceccoli.

In short, Nicoletta Ceccoli is San Marino born and raised artist. She's known mostly for her dreamlike paintings and lots of children's book illustrations which are widely appreciated and often awarded.

We tried to learn a little bit more about Nicoletta and her art.

Neso Art;  Nicoletta, can you describe your perfect working conditions? A perfect atmosphere, surroundings, most convenient part of the day or maybe of the year?

Nicoletta; I love to work in the early morning ,in printemps or summer when the sun rise early.that light make me feel my work ad if full of possibilities.

It's very interesting... Is there a relation between time of the day and creativity?

Have you heard of the 4pm stories? :)

The atmosphere emanating from Nicoletta's paintings is overwhelming. It’s definitely a very interesting mixture of elements which can be considered as completely opposite to each other.

Let's have a look at Nicoletta's favourite movies, as we’ve asked her about top 5 movies of all time.
Maybe it will get us closer to finding out what's on Nicoletta's mind ;)
