"My creations are addressed to people who know or want to know that art is rewarding, and this special gift I received, being a child, from my talented teachers and many others in the schools where I have studied.  True masters of beauty, my teachers ... I consider myself blessed by fate when they told me, with their heart full of love for beauty, the process in which an individual, apparently like any other one, turns raw material into something unique and exciting.

To complete myself, I continued my transformation from the aspiring stage in which I was in the late '90s, along with the great teachers of the times, in Florence, Italy.

I went through a metamorphosis determined by Focardi G, an artist who helped me to discover my mysterious side and the willingness not to stop on a single way of expressing myself. That's the reason why I expressed myself through mural work, large canvas works made with different techniques, textile painting on various types of supports ( gowns, cocktail dresses, shoes, bags and last but not least, hand painting on curtains). So I understood that I realized unique works.

Strictly pictorial, my visions are shaped like my dreams, daring and dazzling, harmonize each other, and everything becomes possible, as it always happens in your dreams. In this context, I have seen and could meditate on how ideas demonstrate the fundamental process of human being, imagining forms, thoughts, dreams.

With emphasis and affection, I wanted my painting to resonate with the viewer's inner side before being visually contemplated. My desire for color urges me to display a living tone, an effervescent color that I only discovered in my works. The color for me is a party.

I dared to aspire to subtle refinement, and that’s the reason I use gold, silver, or copper in a less common way. Because I dare to dream – I have created a mixed technique, generically said to be a combination of the "Grisaille" technique, the technique by which, at the base, an image is executed entirely in grayscale and is made in such a way as to produce the illusion of relief sculpture. I have altered this concept, trying to keep the illusion of relief forms. On the same canvas, I use oil colors that create the comfort and appearance of silk, along with the highly versatile acrylic colors, which, through the intensity of the color palette, satisfy my thirst for color.

I completed many of my works through surfaces and relief lines. For me, this type represents a space of freedom, non-conformism, and uniqueness. I wanted, technical performance and my personal impression in all my works, with a sound message, opposite to my introverted soul.

Even if I'm a dreamer, I do not want to set my limits in just a single artistic formula and I will continue to explore new ways of expression, to constantly transmit emotions and feelings in all its forms.

I'm far from perfect, but everything I do makes me feel alive, intense, profound, better as a human being. The recipe is simple ... The combination of talent with ambition and practice, the focus and the desire to reach a new dimension.

I dared to dream, and with humility, I admit I have not yet said everything.

Perfection does not exist ?! Still, I'm looking for it!

My works were exhibit all over the world from Italy, Monaco, Nice, Japan, Philippines, Romania, Dubai and working on a future exhibition in the USA this year. Here you can check below some links from my past events and exhibitions.
