Laura Iorio was born in 1982 in Frosinone, in central Italy. From a young age, she discovered her love for drawing, and knew that one day she would become either a jazz singer or an artist. In the end, art won out. Following her studies at the International School of Comic Books in Rome, she debuted in 2009 alongside Roberto Ricci and Giancarlo Dimaggio with June Christy (Editions BD-Music), a story about a jazz singer. In 2016 she completed a second collaboration with Roberto Ricci, along with writer Marco Cosimo d'Amico, Le Coeur de l'ombre (Dargaud; The Heart of Shadows, Europe Comics), winner of the Silver Award at the International Manga Awards in 2017.
