Sara Menon

Biography

I was born in 1985 in Palmanova and I live and work in Aquileia, Italy.
I got an academic degree at the Institute of Conservation in Mantua, Italy and I did my first training in Rome, Cosenza, Novara and Venice, while continuing to dedicate to fine arts, primarily to illustration.
I started to work as a natural science illustrator in 2002 teaming up with the forensic scientist Giampiero Ceci, producing detailed plates for his publications. Thanks to the IED, European Institute of Design, in Milan I had the opportunity to meet the Italian illustrator Massimo Demma, who taught me the methods and techniques used in this field, as well as further knowledge about natural science illustration.
My work is characterised by very fine details; I team up mainly with scientific magazines, such
as Mente&Cervello and Giardinaggio, international organisations (United Nations), museums and private corporations.
