I was born in Siena, Italy in 1972 and ever since I was a child the world of colours has always seduced me. However, while I received some awards in school art competitions , I followed a more focused course of studies on verbal expressiveness. When I was 25 years old, I graduated cum laude in foreign languages and literature. My thesis was in Glottology on the evolution of phoneme f- in the Spanish tongue. Later, attracted by communication in all its forms, I spent one year abroad divided between Spain and Belgium and dedicated myself to linguistic research and the teaching of the Italian language and culture, including the history of art.
Following on from this, my interest and studies progressed onto international art, in particular, the European artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. I love the impressionists and expressionists and the brilliant way they break down and recompose reality. In particular, I love Van Gogh, whom I thank for reactivating my passion, dormant over the years, for painting and colour. The spark was struck during a monographic exhibition on the Dutch artist in which the interpenetration between the images of his visionary paintings and the fragments of the letters to his brother Théo melted me to tears. So I decided to go back to painting, to continue to get excited, and to excite others.
I started as a self-taught paintress, but in 2016, feeling stuck, I decided to improve my skills by taking lessons from the master, Maurizio Fulvio Tronconi, of whom I am still a student.
I have participated in several collective and personal exhibitions, in particular, in my homeland Tuscany. You can find my works in the section "Curriculum".
For me art is emotion and, therefore, what I paint is inevitably connected to my personality and to my temporary state of mind. The external environment is filtered by my sensitivity and often, it is the emotion of the moment which determines the choice of colours and the gestures with which I use brushes and spatulas. I can’t and I don’t want to create a painting without coming down to myself and
connecting with my emotional centre of gravity. I dare say, that the final picture represents, in this sense, the door of my soul. I affectionately call my works "my girls" because that’s how I experience them. They give me joy, pain, frustration or anger and I pour my love and commitment on them to make them as best as possible. For one who hangs my paintings on their wall, it does not open his/her house to a simple object but is the result of an emotional and sentimental journey. All the paintings are unique pieces; there are no copies or reproductions. That said, it is also understandable that the heterogeneity of my artistic production and the difference of style between one painting and another is not a lack of pictorial coherence, but the need to give voice to different parts of me. This leads me to express myself with soft and luminous colours with light and delicate shades of colour, with spatulas loaded with matter that make the
painting intense. Overall, my representations lose their concreteness and relevance to reality, transfiguring themselves into dream like atmospheres that contain only the essence of what they were. Everything starts from a suggestion originating from a real vision reworked without any logical process or mental superstructure overlapping. The choice of materials is also varied and falls mainly on oil and acrylic, sometimes embellished by the insertion of gold or silver leaves, paper or plaster.
