I have fallen in love with the imagination. And if you fall in love with the imagination, you understand that it is a free spirit. It will go anywhere, and it can do anything.

Hello

I am an Italian artist and illustrator, now living in Calgary, Canada. After I moved to Calgary, I designed and revitalized City of Calgary property through public art projects on commission basis. 

In 2013 I was the recipient of the CCIS New Canadian Artist Award at Calgary Mayor's Lunch for Art Champions.

Over the years I painted private and public murals.  I successfully published 20 children’s educational books and covers with very popular Italian publishers including Giunti, Florence /  Signum Scuola, Turin / Edition Piemme, Casale Monferrato / De Agostini, Milan / Juvenilia, Milan / Edition EL, Trieste / Editrice Piccoli, Milan. Moreover, I wrote and illustrated the picture book “Gina” published by Gakken, Japan. 

Graduated in painting at the Art Institute E.U. Nordio, Trieste, Italy. Professionally trained in surface design through Make Art That Sells with Lilla Rogers and in illustration through the European Institute of Design, Milan, Italy
