I was born and grew up in Rome, Italy. My water was Italian, my mother is English. My father liked art and he took me around to see a lot of it in Rome. As a career I chose science - specifically molecular neuroscience and genetics. I have worked in research laboratories in Europe and America, settling down in London, England.
I am for the most part self-taught. I paint in both oils and acrylics, though the latter are my favourite medium, because I prefer the consistency of the paint, how it responds to the brush and moves across the canvas, and I like to paint went into dry.
My subject matter at the moment revolves around urban landscapes and political themes. I feel that the places that we live in have a personality, not immediately apparent, at times sinister, and often echoing loneliness . These are reflections that I unwillingly carry with me and it is that, for the most part unintentionally, tend to manifest itself when I paint.
