silvia cristofari

Hello! My name is Silvia and I am a student who is about to finish her last year at high school. I was born in Rome and I still live here with my family. I’m not a big word type, I’m simple and rather shy, which leads me to overthink things and usually to have a very pessimistic point of view. I like writing and drawing and I put my heart into both of them. I hope you will like it!

Meet silvia

• What would you be if you were an animal? 
I think that I would be a wolf, an animal which can stay alone but needs the warmth of his pack. In my case, my backbones are my family and friends.
• Can you describe in a few words your creative process?
Indeed, the idea just appears out of the blue and a second later I’m already working on it. Honestly speaking, sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night because I get an inspiration.
Obviously, I do some research in order to make my outcome look as good as possible. 
• What is your favourite subject matter to illustrate/ write about?
I like to represent images which are able to leave deep emotions and thoughts and make them perceptible to the interlocutor.
• What keeps you inspired and motivated?
I’m curious and easily fascinated even by little things, so anything can inspire me. 
• How do you think projects like Coffee Grounds can make a difference?
I think it can reach people’s hearts more than anyone can imagine.
