I was born in Naples, Italy but lived in London for 17 years and then in various other places in England. Have a BA in English and History from London University. I have been interested in drawing, painting and art in general since my teen years and am mainly self-taught but since I started painting at the age of 21 in London, I attended various drawing and painting classes privately. I also enrolled and attended for 6 months the Cottini Art School (Liceo Artistico Cottini) in Turin in 2006. I then attended for 7 years weekly painting classes at Circolo Ricerche Visive - a painting studio under the supervison of two painters, Marco Longo and Carlo Giaccone - in Turin, Italy where I have been living and working since 2003. I am also interested in photography.
