Data and contact details

I started painting and drawing at a very young age, won a provincial competition in middle school, then studied at the scientific high school and graduated with a degree in Architecture in 1982. Retired since 2015 I have been cultivating my passion for visual arts.
I have worked as an architect and as a teacher. I have always continued to paint and work with clay by taking various courses. I later graduated as an Art Therapist with a Steinerian orientation, and I collaborated with the AUSL of Parma for artistic activities with psychiatric patients.

- From 2005 to 2008 I lived in the UK where I did training, at Hibernia College, Stroud taking courses for Art Therapists and at Wiltshire College and University Centre-taking a course in " Clay, Pottery and Ceramic Glazing."
- From 2012 to 2015 I lived in New Zealand, here I taught art courses for the Dante Alighieri Society and the Anthroposophical Society of Auckland.
- From 2015 to 2020 I lived in Australia where I participated in an art group U3A- "Painting Practice group" - I did Cultural and Artistic Activities at "Dante Alighieri" Brisbane, and volunteer activities c/o "St Vincent's Private Hospital" in Brisbane, doing art activities and exhibition organization at the hospital.
- From 2020 to present I am attending Liceo Artistico Toschi in Parma, and am currently enrolled in the 5th year
I have participated in group exhibitions

I have participated in group exhibitions:

- 2018 and 2019 c/o "Vera Gallery ", Brisbane
- 2020 c/o "St Vincent's Private Hospital" Brisbane.

I have not always been an artist, but I have always been creative. For the past few years I have been looking for my way as an Artist. I like to explore in painting the world of color, light and shadow, spaces and shapes. I try to explore these worlds, careful to consider how they act with the soul and feelings.
