About Me


My artistic poetry is a reflection of my lifestyle imbued with constantly evolving creativity. My art represents the depth of the human experience in all its infinite facets and the world as I perceive it. I am inspired by the many nuances of the human soul, as well as by the beauty of the nature that surrounds me. My distinctive trait manifests itself also in the attention to the expression of the faces of people and animals. I believe that every brushstroke, every line drawn and every color chosen should help communicate the essence of my subject. Every work of art I create is an opportunity for me to convey emotions, feelings and sensations.
Creativity pushes me to constantly look for new ways to express my inner world and my visions of the external world. My poetics is an ever-evolving journey, a journey of discovery and connection with my deepest self and with others.

My Story

My artistic journey has crossed different passions and places over the years. Initially, I began my studies in anthropology and a passion for music which then transformed into a deep passion for painting. I lived for four years in Spain, and then continued for another three years in Brazil, where I began to self-taught painting starting from crochet works that I learned there and then commissioned, with the remains of which I made collages together with others recycled materials. Over time I have expanded my artistic repertoire, exploring both figuration and abstraction, and using portraiture as sources of inspiration and expression. Upon my return to Italy, I had the opportunity to exhibit my works in various galleries, foundations and castles, as well as collaborate with other artists. During this period, I attended art schools such as Brera and the Castle school in Milan, further deepening my techniques. In 2022, together with the artist Paolo Amoretti, I co-founded the Arte e Cucina aps association. With this association, we organized two exhibitions at the Gavi Fort, in collaboration with the Piedmont Regional Museums Directorate and the Gavi Fort Management. I also created a podcast where I interview characters to hear and share their stories.
