I was born in Italy and since I was little I've been interested in art and crafts: I was always watching art programs in television, buying art tools and trying new tecniques. In my early years of life I was mostly invested in glass art, painting, drawing and paper crafts. It was during middle school that I got closer to the world of assemblage and recycling: I bought my first glue gun and I started to stick different small caps and buttons to paintbrushes to decorate them. With time I've gotten more and more invested in crafts and I started to decorate mirrors, pens, photo frames, bookmarks, centerpieces and canvas. In these years I started to feel the need to develope my craft from a simple decoration to an abstact works  on its own so I created bases of cloth, wire and glue that were covered with layers of different materials. Throught trial and error I was able to improve my works and my creations started to grow in size. In these years I've also studied watercolors, fashion design and still life photography. It was in 2018 that, for the first time, I decided to join an art contest; it was the "unconventional art" contest sponsered by the Rypley gallery. Being awarded a place among the finalists of this competiton I started to rethink and redevelope my style from craft to artwork and I started to be more interested in art competitions and this brought me to join during 2019 the "unconventional duo" art contest sponsored by the "How to train your dragon" franchise where I was awarded an honorable mention. Afterwards I started to be intersted in making animal and human sculptures so I started studying anatomy and proportons and I tried to apply them in my works. In 2019 my work was exhibited in Milan for the " Swiss handmade original art contest" aften being selected by a panel of judges.
