Check out our interview with Photographer, Designer and Entrepreneur Aurora Rosselli.
Born and raised in Italy, she began her education at the Liceo Artistico and became devoted to the world of Art. After that, she enrolled at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Catania, where she continued gathering the tools necessary to express her passions you see today throughout her original artwork. She quickly gained popularity in Italy and later on her artwork was displayed in exhibits across Europe and the US.

Describe yourself in 3 words?
That’s a tough question because I’m not sure how the public perceives me… I asked one of my close friends, and he said, “Unique, creative, visionary,” so I’m entirely going with that, I trust his judgment.
Name one of your strengths?
Resilience. I forged my strength in the most stringent circumstances when I stretched myself moving forward, despite everything and everyone. Moving in the US and leave everything behind me in Italy was not an easy decision, and I had to restart my life from the ground up. Once I decided what I wanted to do with my life, I can’t say it was all smooth sailing, but I moved through my goals pretty quickly.
What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
So far, I’ve had a few highlights back to back; Having my work displayed in Time Square billboards and Being a part of a digital exhibit at the Louvre and Scope in Miami. As an artist, those are some significant milestones, and I never thought I would reach that level so quickly once I started working on my photography.
Best advice ever given?
“Stop comparing your behind the scenes to somebody else’s highlight reel.” This is especially true in Social Media; not all we see is the reality of that moment. Everyone struggles to reach a specific goal, and no one has an easy journey. We are prone to compare because we have constant access to people’s highlights creating an awful cycle of pride and despair. The only person we should compare ourselves is our past self. When we can look at ourselves in a month, a year, or a decade, we can see how we’ve grown and changed, and be proud of how far we came along in our journey.
What is your own definition of happiness?
Living life on my terms, doing what I love the most. That doesn’t even feel like I’m working one day in my life. I’ve never been very good at living life in a box, the way everyone else does. That’s not who I am. I’ve always been a passionate advocate of living life on your terms, and I’ve ever tried to push everyone else to do the same. Being my own boss, calling the shots, and not answering anyone else is the only way I can see myself working and living daily, all while making time for my loved ones creating my schedule as needed.
How would you describe your fashion style?
I’m known for my black, dark, over-the-top, darkly romantic rock-inspired style. I love “manic luxury” that is unapologetically loud. Black, leather, studs, skulls… any luxury brand that includes that, you’ll find it in my wardrobe.
How do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I hope to take my job on the road and traveling around the world. I’ve never lived this long in one place, and I’m already suffocating… we’ll see where my job will take me and how I can push it a few steps further.
Do you support any charities?
Yes, I’m actively part of the National Charity League, a non-profit multi-generational philanthropic organization designed to encourage community service and volunteering opportunities for mothers and their daughters in grades 7-12.
I’m committed to community service, leadership development, and cultural experiences by empowering women with the skills and confidence to lead, nurturing through mentorship, all while inspiring a legacy of social awareness and compassion, providing a depth of support in local communities.
