Luli’s day begins sharply. Moving from “cups and cups” of coffee, the artists does yoga exercises to energize herself and “wake up the body” before starting to deal with the orders her shop receives. Then she starts painting, inspired by the nature around her, the plants she keeps in her home and the botanical books she collects.

Alone, or with the company of her cat, she usually spends hours in her office coming up with ideas for new projects. “Like any freelance illustrator, I keep a planner that’s carefully organized. It’s fundamental to know what it is you have to deliver, and when” she says.
