I am a classically trained italian artist and art is my true passion. I attended Gazzola Art school in my hometown and Cova Art insititute in Milano and I've been diligently working on my painting skills over the past ten years, while working as a portrait artist and a trompe l'oeil painter in Italy.
I specialize in both figurative art and portraiture and I equally enjoy painting portraits of people and pets.
I paint in many different mediums, altough I favour pastels - both the dry and the oil ones - for their luminosity and sparkle while reflecting light, just like diamonds.
I find they are most suited to delicately render realistic skin tones and to capture the expression and spirit of children, adults and pets with a very soft finish that is quite distinctive of my portraits.
Whether you desire a portrait of yourself, a dear friend, family member or pet, I would love the opportunity to create a fine art pastel portrait for you, to enjoy and cherish forever.
