Why A quiet perspective?

As an introvert personality, feeling like a stranger in a conventional environment, I have learnt, early in my childwood, to create my own world as a way to escape, survive and be happier.

Being very sensitive to extreme stimulations such as loud volume or intense light and colours I prefer to conceive calm and low atmospheres, which make me appreciate more details and subtle nuances.

I was born in one of the most artistic city in the world, Florence, Italy, which I am sure planted in me a spontaneous sense of beauty.

The ability to give birth to something with my hands fulfills, since then, my sense of satisfaction and relief.

Despite oppositions, my natural talent has always emerged and I have managed to follow my path.

And here I am, still evolving, looking for new ways to express myself and keep my interest up.

Why I paint

. I can't help it

. it comes natural to me and I am pretty good at it

. I really enjoy to be by myself in the studio and enter my personal world made of good vibes and beautiful stuff

. it is my way to communicate: I'd rather express myself with images than words

. it keeps me sane...

What I love

. birds singing just before dawn

. having coffee in nice places

. wandering in little towns

. tiny, cosy interiors

. a simple life

...oh, and I have an incomprehensible attraction for boxes.

Probably my feline side...
