Hello!

I'm Muxxi. I'm an illustrator and character designer.  I love creating colorful and fun characters surrounded by magical environments.

I work with different mediums (murals, paintings, drawings) but most of the time I work digitally. I own a little space with my husband where we work remotely. I love traveling, and a good cup of coffee with a fun drawing session.

Amazing people who I have worked with:

Testimonials

We were super excited to work with Muxxi. Her work inspires people around the globe including us and it’s a really powerful mood booster too. Muxxi created a family of vibrant characters for ChattyFeet which added a fresh twist to our brand!
— Gil Kahana - Co-Founder, Chattyfeet
Incredibly talented and a wonderful person to work with, Muxxi has supported us with her involvement in several Inkygoodness exhibitions, in addition to producing her character fuelled illustrations for ad-hoc projects. Her passion for illustration is reflected in everything she does, and combined with her strong work ethic and positive nature she always over delivers. Her portfolio is ever-evolving with new ideas, and we hope to create more opportunities to work with her.
— Lisa Hassell Owner & Co Director, Inkygoodness
It was love at first sight when we discovered Muxxi’s majestic characters and her other-worldly landscapes. Collaborating to create a Momiji doll was such a satisfying process. Her ideas were always inspiring and we loved the end result. We’re extremely proud to have Muxxi as part of the Momiji family of guest designers.
— Claire Rowlands - Co-founder, Momiji
Muxxi has created an original, fascinating surreal world, carefully painted and capturing her own mythology. Strong echoes from Miro. An underlying sense of fun and humor.
— Gerald Scarf - Illustrator & Cartoonist - Jury, Noise Festival 2014
Working with Muxxi was a great experience. She’s one of the best illustrator we’ve ever worked with: unique, precise and very helpful. She created a magical world around Sammontana brand. We can’t wait to collaborate with her on future projects.
— Veronica Ciceri - Art Director, Auge Headquarter
