Sara Fanelli was born in Florence. Her American mother was an art historian, and her father taught the history of architecture. She studied for a Diploma di Maturita at the Liceo Classico Michelangelo before coming to England to continue her education. She completed a City and Guilds Foundation Course Diploma at London Art School and a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design at Camberwell College of Art before going on to study for an MA in Illustration at the Royal College of Art, London. Sara has completed a number of commissions. She has done illustrations for the New York Times, the Times Educational Supplement, Tatler, the Independent on Sunday and the Radio Times, amongst others. Her clients include Ford, BBC Worldwide, National Westminster Bank and Nickelodeon. She appreciates Italy's history and slower and more relaxed lifestyle, but believes London offers better stimulus, contemporary art and music.
