Giada Maestra is a London-based illustrator whose main inspiration lies in the everyday, in the ordinary and in the unnoticed. She likes portraying scenes of every-day life using mixed media on digital. Body acceptance, sexual health and period poverty are the central topics when she represents women.

Giada received her education between Strasbourg, Paris and Venice, where she studied Fashion Design and Multimedia Arts at IUAV University. Graduated in 2021 with an MA in Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts, University of The Arts London, she’s interested in storytelling and publishing.

When not drawing, you can find her collecting beautifully designed stationery, indoor plants and books.
