My name is Sara Gianassi, and I am from Florence, Italy.
and painting have always been passions of mine. When I was 15 I started
taking some private Drawing, Traditional Painting, and Fresco classes
with Master Massimo Callossi, former student of famous painter Pietro
Annigoni (1998 - 2005).
Then I Studied "Costume and Scenic Design" at
the Department of Architecture of the University of Florence, from
which I graduated with honors in 2007.
During college I attended a
private course of traditional sculpting with Master Vincenzo
Ventimiglia, professor at Academy of Fine Arts of Florence, and I was
awarded with an Erasmus Scholarship, which allowed me to study for six
months at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (2004 - 2005).
graduating, I started working (2008) as a textile and graphic designer
for fashion clothing brand Pratesi Casatex srl, in Pistoia, Italy; I
worked there for three years, and although I was offered a long-term
position, I realized that the world of fashion wasn't really my thing.
So I undertook a new professional path, taking lessons to improve my
skills as a designer and cloth modeler; I attended the Angela Vaggi Tei
School for "CLOTH MODELERS" in Prato, Italy (2011 - 2012), and the
"ENTERTAINMENT DESIGN" course at the NEMO Academy of Florence (2010 -
2013). While studying at the NEMO Academy I also had the chance to
attend several workshops on Character Design, Animation, Illustration,
Storyboarding, etc., with great instructors such as Stephen Silver, J.P.
Vine, Alex Orelle, Liron Topaz, Lindsay Olivares, Bobby Chiu, Kei
Acedera, Yoichi Kotabe, Takashi Namiki, Victor Navone, and Sandro
Now that I have completed my training I am looking for jobs as freelance or as an employee in a studio.
I also love travelling, singing, and playing sports - especially capoeira.
