About

I am an artist and designer with an eclectic background as an art curator and educator. I was born in Vicenza, a beautiful city near Venice, Italy, and have lived and worked in California, Virginia, New Mexico, Florida and Hawaii. I now reside in New York City, where I have exhibited and collaborated extensively with museums, galleries, theaters, independent art venues, and nonprofits organizations.

Since an early age, I have been fascinated by the connection between spirituality and art, psychology and the collective unconscious, prayer and the creative process. My art is often a spontaneous expression or visual stream of consciousness for the many moments of synchronicity and “magic” enfolding while meditating, creating, pursuing my dreams and helping others achieve their highest potential.

I enjoy combining abstraction with realism, and I split my time between making whimsical and colorful illustrations and creating more involved, multi-layered paintings. I mainly work on paper, continuously experimenting with and combining different materials and techniques, from watercolors to soft pastels, gouache, graphite, textured grounds, 3D mixed media applications, and more. I also like creating digital art and animations.

Portrait of Artist

* * * Artist Statement * * *

“Painting is the grandchild of nature.
It is related to God.”
Rembrandt

My art practice is guided by a strong interest in the healing and contemplative qualities of art, from the cathartic effect of viewing art to the reflective and meditative process of artmaking itself. I use art as a vehicle to access that state where the borders between heart, mind and spirit often seem to disappear. My inspiration often comes from prolonged sessions of prayer and walking meditation, as well as the sounds and sights all around me.

When I was a child, my dream was to have magic powers. Growing up I learned that magic can be found in small acts of kindness, and that good fairytales never age. My work often incorporates symbolic allusions to myths and fairytales, the rhythms of nature and life cycles. I am particularly drawn to color and texture, and to depicting natural subjects abstractly transformed. Trees and stars are also a constant in my work, alluding to concepts relating to family trees/roots, migrations/transformations, and microcosms/macrocosms.

My style is often described as ethereal and evocative. My goal is to capture the universal essence of our inner landscape and stories. Through my art, I hope to inspire viewers by offering glimpses of stillness and power, beauty and joy, the divine and the human.
