I studied art at the ‘Accademia di Belle Arti’ in Venice, Italy. I have been so lucky to get to know and experiment in many disciplines such as painting, drawing, anatomy, sculpting and etching. However since moving to London I have fallen in love with a new media. One day when out shopping, I saw a wooden panel sign which had ‘Home Sweet Home’ I brought it home and carved into it my first woodcut. Ever since then I have been experimenting with linocut and woodcut, and my love for it has grown.
The woman is the centre of most of my work. I aim to capture the beauty of the body, soul and the simple gestures. My linocuts allow bold outlines and delicate details. So once printed on paper, it will show the beautiful definition and intricate lines of the woman’s body which create a sensual and unforgettable image. Simple, but powerful, my artwork tell a story in which the female stands out as a beautiful and independent creature.
The common denominator in my artwork is the use of bright colours. Using acrylic, I generate very thick layers to create a palpable texture which I sometimes like to emphasise with use of real flowers. In my pastel and pencil art (mainly commission), I use a very delicate tone to recreate the connection between the subject and the viewer.
