i was born in Siena, italy, in 1978. My father is a painter, and he has left this trait on my sister and me as well. I was trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, but I have learnt painting mostly at home. I like also drawing costumes, sewing, reading Tolkien and playing irish music. For the moment I'm working as graphic designer for a newspaper and waiting for the call as Art History teacher from a local school.
