I was born in Parma, city of artistic and musical culture, in 1969. From an early age, I showed great dexterity in handling material, however my encounter with art did not take place until adulthood. Having accomplished a number of important commercial marketing and communication experiences with good results, I entered a phase of interior reflection that within just a few months, brought me into sudden contact with painting, expressing my true communicative identity.
I was initially self-taught and expressed what I wanted to achieve. This change in lifestyle led me to rediscover a passion for history and archaeological sites. I visited megalithic sites in Ireland, Brittany, England and Malta, to study on site the representative and divinatory symbology as a primitive form of communication of human life on earth. These sites made me aware of the artistic production that I am generating, awakening mystic metaphoric messages, that are partly unknown to us, but that express the ancient knowledge of the populations that lived in those places.
Observing and cohabiting with my works on a daily basis, I discover new meanings that were concealed at the time of creation and that fuel motivation on the path chosen, and maybe make a contribution to contemporary art.

In June 2005, I was chosen to participate in the 6th INTERNATIONAL BIENNALE IN MALTA (105 countries), chaired by Dame Francoise Tempra, in the ITALIAN section presented to the then President of the EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT, J. BOREL , I won the EMERGING ITALIAN ARTIST AWARD FOR “ THE SECOND FEMALE MESSENGER BODY “ .
I received a special mention at the 41st International GROLLA D’ORO Competition in Treviso in 2005.
2006 was characterised by shows in galleries in numerous Italian cities, such as Verona , Roma , Treviso …… and the start of a partnership with the “ ARTEFORMA “ agency in Castelfranco Veneto and the “ OPERA MEDITERRANEA “ agency in Barcelona, as well as the beginning of an exhibition tour titled “ CONTEXTO EXTERIOR “ Mensajes across SPAIN for 2007/08 .
I have also been invited to the 7th International Biennale in Malta.

Having decided to dedicate myself entirely to art in 2005, I have started studying for an archaeological history degree as support to my work. Visitors, artists, curators, journalists and lecturers have commented my work in diverse ways, one of the most curious of these was the remark made by a university professor who compared these female bodies to “Sibyllines, beautiful virgins, dancers, able to tell the future, and that lived in antiquity”.
