How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

( Forgive a metaphor )
Whether a celebration, a comment, a therapy or self indulgent play, image making engages my mind and body in a staging of personal mythologies .
The process becomes this private, always revealing Play and the finished picture is to my eyes the Just-vacated stage where chanced props, spotlights, cracked masks, smoke screens, echoes, the whole perplexing array of clues, offer the curious the experience of sensing and reenacting the drama (or farce), by means of their own emotional input. ( Curtains )

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

The visual quest, a search for meanings through connections and a compulsion to celebrate our place in the ineffable and sublime...

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

My medium is mainly acrylic paint, on canvas or board, applied by brush, but I don't think of fhe materials I employ as anything more than vehicles for the making of images, conveying ideas, visions...: I am an image maker.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

Classic, traditional art training in Italy. Practice of illustration, cartoons, portraiture, design for the textile industry.
