I am an Italian artist born in Sicily (1985), where I studied at Liceo Artistico "Diego Bianca Amato" in Cefalù to obtain a diploma of goldsmith and qualification of art master. Working as a ceramic artist, I developed skills to paint on various materials and surfaces while understanding colour and its use.
My latest collection is a homage to the Sicilian cultural wonderland with inspiration stemming from Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Norman and Spanish heritages. Sicily is a brilliant mix of old and new, traditional and unexpected, therefore I use the traditional Sicilian majolica techniques and adding the 24k gold features to stress and revive the beauty of this magical island. The majolica ceramics have survived for centuries and the stories they still tell us remain as vital, unique and animated as the hand-painted baroque ornamentations themselves.
My work is currently in private collections in the USA, United Kingdom, Portugal and Australia.
