About me

I am an Italian artist and illustrator.
I graduated in Stage Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lecce.
I started creating illustrations for children but over the years my focus has shifted to issues related to the psyche, to the deeper meanings hidden in language and to the more daring connections between words and images. I'm interested in feelings, emotions and troubles of the soul. 
I work with mixed media on paper and canvas (monotype, collage, graphite, acrylic, pastels, grattage). The use of vibrant colours and bold contrasts, alongside the mélange of various materials and media, enable me to create a complex world where reality coexists with metaphorical elements, the surreal and psychological; a world that can be interpreted in a variety of levels.
