About the artist:
Sicily based artist (b.1973) My preference for nature and the outdoors, drive me to natural colors and sunlight themes. Although not directly, my painting deals with environmental issues and the dangers of climate change, seeking a constant dialogue with nature, especially plant forms, on which will probably depend much of our future survival as human beings.
Actually working also in product-adv, brand art, and greeting card designs as I'm very interested in growing my activity in the Art Licensing field.
As a free-lance Illustrator I have been working for about 12 years for book publishers (children's books, textbooks), and design studios, in Italy and worldwide.
I love mixing traditional techniques of illustration, and digital composition. Inspired by nature, its shapes, and colors.
As a painter/artist I started painting large abstract canvases as little sizes on paper, about three years ago (2018), predominantly with acrylics. I like working more freely and painting as an artist makes me feel the work more mine!
