Born in Italy and currently living in England.

I have a BA (Hons) in Visual arts, a PGCE in art and design, a PG in Asian art and a MA by project in Fine art with a research on Zen brushwork.

I have studied colour and relaxation therapy and I am also a certified dream builder coach.

I have a great passion for Chinese and Japanese art and creates calligraphy, painting, sculpture and craft such as origami and kirigami.

My work follows a path that reflects my recent research on gesture focusing on the relationship between body and mind. I use ink and earth powder (originate from the volcano "Etna") for 2D work, PAPER AND METAL FOR CRAFT.

I actually work as a freelance artist, author and Transformation life coach in Ipswich.  I have exhibited my work in Italy, England, Germany, Portugal and won a prize for my original style. i have wrote 4 books and now working on my fifth dedicated to the kew gardens.

I am also now a co-founder of an art organization that support and give a voice to children in Nigeria called "slumart" (see link on the main menu for more information)

I am available for commisions and i also run workshops linking art with coaching to empower people and help them to follow their dream and transform their life.

I use mandala as an input to represent their life vision.
