  • Biography

    September 2020 - I've had so much time over the past months to reflect on where I want to go with my art. I've never wanted to be photographically realistic and have always leaned more towards impressionism with emphasis on emotion, but now I find I'm taking this a step further. My painting has taken a slightly abstract turn where not everything we see is figuratively explicable but it remains an emotional journey. 

    April 2020 - Living through self isolation isn't easy. I alternate my art projects and online English lessons so as not to feel completely alone.  The region where I live (Lombardy) is the hardest hit by coronavirus and I don't know when we'll be able to return to normal life.  Luckily my courier is still working albeit with the safety precautions dictated by cocid-19, so any paintings sold will be delivered safely, although some delays may occur.

    August 2019 - My latest piece (and probably the following three or four) is another in the Cafè Culture series. Not quite ready to upload to Artfinder, but watch this space.

    June 2019 - update. Artist's block, fortunately a very rare occurrence for me, has occurred nonetheless. In fact, 2019 so far has been dire in terms of art production on my part. I gave up trying for a while and took myself inwards working on other aspects of my being.  I hope the result will lead to me becoming a better person and a better artist.  I've taken up the brushes again for a painting that I was commissioned to do and this has led me on to do another painting for my daughter's birthday, it won't be for sale obviously but I will post it into my 'Me at work' page together with the Commission.  Here's hoping the remaining months of 2019 will lead to good things from every viewpoint.

    2018 - was a good year for my art all in all.  

    I started working on several new themes, one being cityscapes.  I always find these very exacting and exhausting but I'm proud of some ot the results, especially the large canvases depicting Milan. For one of these, "I love Milano", I used a new technique combining photography with painting and the result is quite astounding so 2019 may see some more of that.

    After selling the largest of my "women at the window" series, in December I completed another, "Woman at the window with cat" and have decided to continue this series into 2019, it gives me so much pleasure, as well as being a favourite among my collectors.

    To make browsing easier, I have divided some paintings into Collections.  If you look to the left of my storefront, you'll see "Shop sections". The first are Artfinder default collection titles, but after "Recently added" you can see the titles of my own Collections and click on the ones you might want to look at, 'Ballerinas' is always a favourite.

    Thank you so much dear Art lover, without you, I couldn't exist.

    Being an artist for me means being on a never-ending learning curve. You can never put the brush down and say, “Right, I’ve mastered it”. You have to continually strive to improve and refine your technique. Sometimes it can be very frustrating and then one day, click, you’ve moved along the curve a little bit more and the sun is shining down on you. 

    Thanks to Artfinder and the Internet, I now have collectors all over the world, some of whom I am in contact with on a regular basis. I'll receive a message in my AF message box from a person who bought something from me some time ago, asking if I could do something similar for a friend.  Or someone will write simply to say how much they admire a certain painting -  it makes this virtual gallery so much more personal and up close.  Whatever I do, I need to know that my painting touches the hearts of others.  This alone is enough to keep me going.

    I accept commissions, so if you think my style is suitable for something you have in mind, please don’t hesitate to use the ‘Contact’ button (you'll find it when clicking on any image and scrolling down), I’d love to hear and discuss together the best piece of art to suit your requirements. 

    I hope you enjoy browsing my online store here in Artfinder.

    Ah... by the way, I always include a little surprise gift for my collectors.

    The Region of Lombardy - The four seasons at Idroscalo (Milano)

    I rarely enter competitions but Idroscalo is very close to where I lived at the time, near Linate airport. It is an artificial lake and we'd spend many pleasant days there, hence my wish to enter this competition where I was one of the prize winners awarded a nice fat cheque.
