In my ink drawings I focus on light and shade, using traditional nibs and ink on heavy grain cotton paper to get rough and unruly marks, with an effect similar to engraving.
I was raised between Bastia (France) and Toronto (Canada) before moving back to Rome, where I currently live. I have a M.A. in International law and professional diplomas in photography and painting from Rome's Schools of Arts and Crafts Ettore Rolli and San Giacomo. I also trained in nude and portrait at Rome’s Academy of Fine Arts and London Slade School of Arts.
I worked as educator, translator, photojournalist and stage assistant and in the field of development cooperation and EU policies for the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
