“At work I get to know surrounding world, its boundaries and also its new openings. I touch histories with picture which are deeply hidden in people, they are reflections of their memories. Art not only connects but also allows me to travel without moving. To discover a man without one shared word”.
Since childhood she knew she wanted to draw and perform graphic art. Passion and tenacious work led her to concept art, oil painting, digital painting and visual development. She loves to paint dramatic portraits on black background inspired by Caravaggio’s art depicting figures enveloped in their histories’ mystery written in expression of their bodies. Exhibitions of Alfons Mucha had strong influence on the artist’s output hence constant presence of flowers in her works. Most often she paints oil paintings on wood. She experiments with mixing of different substances with paint to obtain unique colours. She plays with charcoal, red chalk, although in her opinion, simple traditional pencil is the best. She tries to obtain similar effects using digital tools and software. Growing up and learning in Italy, she grew fond of the Enlightenment period and also symbols and myths which she made key elements of her artistic pursuits.
