Art has always been my true passion.
It all started at a tender age when, as a child, I preferred sitting quietly at home drawing instead of going out to play with my friends. I loved to draw freehand anything from memory, and this proved to be an excellent exercise, just perfect to educate my hand to draw well.
My favourite subjects have always been people and pet portraits, although I also like to paint flowers. still lifes and landscapes.
I attended Gazzola Art school in my home town as well as the Cova institute in Milano, where I learnt to paint portraits, trompe l’oeils and mural decorations and I have been successfully working as a muralist and a portrait artist ever since.
I specialize in painting portraits of people and pets as well as creating fantasy pet art: sweet, romantic scenes that convey a sense of peace, connection and harmony, to provide a peaceful refuge from this frantic life.
My portraits are created in a wide variety of mediums, all of which are professional artist’s quality and lightfast that will last for centuries if properly cared for.
I am accomplished in many medias, but I favour pastels because I find them ideal for capturing the delicate subtlety of the human face and pets fur, with a very soft finish that is quite distinctive of my portraits.
I am also a true animal lover, I have an adorable dog that fills my days with his trusty and affectionate company and so he holds a special place in my heart. I think pets enrich so much our lives with their sincere love and devotion that I can’t help but being drawn to paint them, whether in a pet portrait or as a subject for my fantasy animals paintings.
The ultimate aim of my art and my true payoff is to make people feel good, bringing joy and relief to pet owners with a memorial pet portrait to cherish, or just pure happiness with a beautiful portrait of their child, nephew, or their pet, to become a family heirloom to be cherished for many generations to come.
With my whimsical paintings, I aim to provide a dreamy, lovely and magical world full of happiness, friendship and love for anyone, children and adults.
