About

Born in Sondrio, Italy, in 1987, I felt since my early childhood a deep connection with drawing.

I graduated at the Gaudenzio Ferrari Artistic High School. Then, I studied Psychology at the university, still cultivating my passion for art by attending workshops and evening classes. In particular, the triennial illustration course at the Castello Sforzesco Illustration School in Milan helped me in developing my own style. I understood that my calling was to create a personal imaginative world where express my interiority. Indecisive in art as in life, I experimented several techniques: oil, crayons, acrylic, ink and digital drawing. I also lived in Italy, France and Ireland. Those different places cultures influenced my work who is continuously evolving.

I now work as an art teacher and freelance artist: I realize paintings on commission, sell my prints and original works and I design logos and graphics illustrations. I took part in contests and exhibition in Europe, USA and Asia.

Beside art and psychology, I am passionate about literature, esoterism and astrology. I think indeed that all those disciplines help in learning about ourselves and in communicating with our deeper soul. While considering myself an aesthete, I find in fact that the value of the art goes beyond beauty since it allows us to meet our spiritual part.
