Born in 1986 in Milan.

Came to Ireland in 2012 following the beautiful landscape and its traditional music.

I went to a course in Botanical art and illustration in IADT (Dun Laohaire) with Ida Mitrani (2013) and The Schoolhouse of Art in Enniskerry with Yanny Petters (2015),  since then I regularly  meet with other botanical artists at the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin under the wings of Susan Sex.

I studied horticulture with the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland and I have a certificate in Principles of Organic Growing (OGI). 

Studied art all my life, I have a Diploma in Illustration and Multimedia Animation, IED Milano and worked as a graphic designer in edizioni BD until 2011.

 

I have been involved with NCAD Community Garden in Dublin 8 and I am deeply interested in ecology, environment, health and food.

I have been working with farmers, coops and small businesses to improve their brand and sold paintings to privates.
