About

I was born in Italy in 1966. Ironically we arrived in Australia on April Fool’s day when I was 5 years old. From that point on my life was never the same again‚ I felt an alienation and loneliness that no child should be allowed to feel.
My creative nature led to more self-absorption. Paint‚ pencils‚ paper and canvas became my friends while line‚ colour‚ tone‚ form and texture became my language. My art didn’t need me to learn words‚ because it spoke for itself.
I still find myself alone‚ even more so now after the recent loss of my beautiful husband.
When I think about the past I am slowly learning to take comfort in it. I truly believe that no God would put anyone through all of these hardships without a reason. Out of the solitude and loneliness my best ideas and works are born.
My art has always prevailed to save me. And because of this‚ he must have a reason why he wishes me to paint….
In all I feel that the initial sketch of a new painting is the skeleton‚ the composition is the soul and the colour gives it life and body.
