I SPLIT MY TIME BETWEEN MY STUDIOS IN BRESCIA, ITALY AND DENVER, COLORADO.
RIGHT NOW I AM IN MY ITALY STUDIO!
PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT SHIPPING FROM BOTH MY STUDIOS... I HAVE SOMEONE MANAGING MY WORK IN AMERICA!
I picked up my first paint brush too early to remember. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, studying on a full tuition scholarship under renowned artists including Jane Rosen, Don Eddy, Jan Groth and Jack Youngerman.
My artistic process is based on the original creativity blueprint I was born with. Life has a way of robbing us of our innate, spontaneous, natural creativity over time. I am here to reclaim it.
The common thread that underlies all of my work is a desire and intention to stop, stand still, find moments for the contemplation and interpretation of the environment that surrounds us all, all of the time, the pulse of life and natural becoming that never stops, never quiets, never remains the same. Making sense of my own place on this planet, as part of the living breathing biosphere that I am a part of… that is why I paint. The truth is that I find the natural world enthrallingly, overwhelmingly captivating, and beautiful. My artistic practice interprets that beauty, power, and unpredictable force.
My paintings are an ode to life, to becoming, and to majesty. They are a reminder to take a moment to release the trappings of the mundane, to look up, down, far, and close. To be still.
My work is the result of meditation, intuition, and sometimes a real or perceived memory. A walk in the rain. The sky at dusk. The sunrise. The lotus flowers on the lake. The flaming sun. Koi slow-dancing in the pond. When I walk into my studio, I always feel that thrill. I am coming home. I am understood. I am in my native country.
My paintings are made to call you home. Home to yourself, to your own space of light.
My technique is immediate and instinctive. I never use black (the absence of light) in my paintings. My canvases convey an inclination towards light and space and expressive color, and change in appearance and mood depending on the time of day, the weather, and the season. My work is beckoning, instantaneous, and sensual. My perspective is tactile and sensorial. I create spaces that are sometimes dreamlike and sometimes reminiscent of the natural world.
My paintings have been exhibited in Italy, Greece, and the United States in numerous exhibitions, and are part of many private collections around the world, in particular the United States, Canada, Italy, and Germany. I was recently awarded as a finalist at the 2021 Biennale di Genova.
Creativity is our natural blueprint.
