I'm 43 years old and reside within the Mornington Peninsula. I'm first generation Australian, but grew up in a traditional Italian household with strong family values. I've always had in interest in art at a very young age and have done it for most of my life. I was not good at school but have had to teach myself, through this, I have a lot of interests and am always interested in improving myself.

Biography

I have always had an interest in art and was drawing at a very young age, and pride myself on being a self taught artist. Specialising in portraiture and figurative, but equally adept in still life and landscape, I am very adaptive and versatile to a broad range of styles with a preference to classical, abstract and contemporary as well as materials and processes, including oils, acrylics, screen printing, etching, lino, pencil, pen and pastelI. I have a great passion creating commission pieces for both private and commercial use. I work closely with my clients to ensure that all criteria is met. I actively participate in art exhibitions both local and abroad for which I have won awards. I create pieces both emotive and dramatic, using techniques that I have developed over the course of my career.
