Laura Bellusci is a versatile artist and illustrator. She likes nature and transfers the beauty of its colours on canvas.
Bellusci studied techniques of oil painting with Maestro Francesco Giovinazzo for more than 10 years, and her works – including naïfs and abstractions – have appeared in a number of art exhibitions. She has shown her paintings in private galleries at local and national levels, including B.a.r.t (Busto Arsizio), Menaggio (Lake Como), Villa Castelbarco (Milan), and the University of Calabria.
Several of her works are in private collections and can be found on Italian and international art websites. Others have been used as illustrations for books published in Italy. Crystal and Jade is Laura’s first children's book, and is the realization of a lifelong dream.
Laura Bellusci was born in Calabria (southern Italy) but has lived and worked in Busto Arsizio (near Milan in northern Italy) for more than 40 years. From childhood she showed promise as an artist and was soon recognized for her talent: at the age of 11 she won a contest sponsored by a national Italian newspaper.
