Bio:

former journalist and video reporter, based between london and tuscany, my art practice is multifaceted. painting is mostly my maquette for sculptures. MA in corporate communication, BA studies in italy (fine arts academies in perugia and rome, course of painting), O.R.A. prize 2018 ed. award winning for the art research; finalist artist at arte laguna prize 2019 land art section.
playing performer for eliza soroga, aram bartholl, andreco; i made my first steps in metal working at beverly pepper's studio in todi (it).
my art approach is multifaceted. i subvert the beehive metaphor so far considered in visual arts to investigate human social behaviour across bees' cultural learning (or what scientists study about).

i employ reinassance painting techniques within contemporary visions and materials.
