Born and educated in Genoa, Italy I developed a love for the arts at a very young age. Italy, a country that has contributed so much tothe arts worldwide, gave me a sense of the artistic patrimony and the fundamentals for what I wanted to do and become in my life. I am an artistand art instructor. I continued my art education in Boston at the Vesper George School of Art. I have received numerous awards for my paintings andpainted ceramic pieces. In 1998 I founded the Arts Institute Group of theMerrimack Valley, it was a success as I put my heart and soul to achieveit. I am now retired from the board. With my leadership, the group promoted both visual and performing arts in the community by organizing many exhibits, performances, workshops, and demonstrations. As an instructor,I have worked for the City of Lawrence, MA, City of Andover, and Northern Essex Community College, MA. I had the privilege to be a judge for many organizations such as the Andovers’ Artist Guild, The Snow Show-Greater Derry Council, as well as promoted State and local arts events. I held office in local organizations, always willing to give of my time to promote the Arts. “My Art does not belong to me, I belong to my Art.” Ever since I can remember, painting or creating through the various mediumshas been my way of life as an artist. I want to take the viewer intoa special place: if it is a landscape, for them to be there; if it is a portrait, to feel that one has the real person next to them; if it is a floral, to sense the fragrance. Please enjoy what I present to you. Just remember these paintings are part of me, done in tune with nature, my soul, my heart and my skills as a painter. As a cancer survivor, I am very grateful to be able to continue to create and realize my dreams and endeavors. My passion, besides the fine arts, are teaching the Italian Language– that includes private tutoring and Photography. Arts! Food for the Soul!!!
