I am half English, half Italian and currently live in Canberra, Australia.
I have been lucky to work with amazing clients in the UK, across Europe, the USA and here in South East Asia. These have included painting huge murals, with my team of professional artists, on the biggest cruise ships in the world with Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line and Cunard. We have worked with leading hotels and interior designers and we have also created artwork for the retail sector and in office spaces.
We have also enjoyed producing residential commissions for the most diverse set of clients from pop stars (Elton John,Lilly Allen) and sports celebrities (The Beckhams) to families a bit more like mine, that simply want to bring to life to a children’s nursery or the family living space.
I grew up surrounded by murals and artwork, learning from a young age how beautiful art could create unexpected magic. I was formally trained in London at the Chelsea College of Art then mentored by two internationally recognised artists, Francesco Colacicchi (Florence) and Leonard Pardon (London).
With an Italian background and having lived and studied in Rome and Florence, I can’t help but look to the mastery of illusion and elegance of the Italian arts and weave such great material into a more contemporary style.
I try to “give” through my work. Within large murals or painting, for example, I always provide meticulously painted details, knowing that these will give pleasure as they are discovered over time and appreciated. While in Indonesia I enjoyed mentoring younger artists and been able to donate my time to produce artwork for a children’s hospital.
