Where is the distinction between what we define as art and what, instead, as illustration? and why ? Felicita Sala is an illustrator who was born here in Italy but grew up in Australia. She moved back to Italy a few years ago and now lives and works in Rome. Her career in illustration first started taking shape when she decided to sell her paintings on the street as a way to earn extra income. It was the first step of many towards Felicita defining her identity as an illustrator ( and as an artist, in our opinion). Hear her story and our discussion about art, love, travel and what can happen when you step outside the boundaries of what you’ve been taught.
