What do you do? How do you define yourself as an artist?
I was born in Italy and grew up creating and loving art. I have studied art both abroad and in the USA. I am passionate about what I do, not matter the subject or the technique, what matters to me is what I feel. And it is with my hands, my eyes, my brain, my heart, as matter of fact is with my all being that I am able to create.
What is your message?
The message is very personal. I believe that it always is with art. I believe that the message of my paintings can be interpreted in many different ways by the viewers. If anything I would like the message to be one of smplicity, to just admire and feel the need to own a work of art.

Even in my sleep I have ideas of what I want to create. And every single moment of me been awake is taken up by inspiration and the need to create. I have not a problem coming up with ideas since I do find inspiration in everything that surrounds me.

Must an artist reinvent him/herself everyday?
Is art necessary?
This is a question that could have been asked to the cavemen. Their answer today would be absolutely, positively, yes! Nothing has changed, then as now, art is as neccesary as eating and drinking.
