Daniela Bartolomeoli (Rome, 1974) was raised between France and Canada before moving back to Rome where she currently lives. After a M.A. in International Law, with a thesis on self-determination and minority rights in Kosovo, and a publication with La Sapienza University Press, she got professional diplomas in film photography and in painting from Rome's schools of arts and crafts Ettore Rolli and San Giacomo. For a few years she worked as photojournalist for local agencies, newspaper and web, and as educator in youth schooling projects and summer camps. She also had the opportunity to follow as stage assistant the show "Forbici Follia" at Colosseo Theatre in Rome. To improve her drawing skills she then attended Rome's Academy of Fine Arts School of Nude and a portrait course at Slade summer school in London, drawing models from real life. She is currently employed part-time at the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, following EU policies and enlargement. Proficient in English and French, she also holds language and drawing labs for kids and works as translator and interpreter.
