I was born in 1948 in Naples, Italy. After travelling around Europe for a few years, moved at the age of 21 in London, UK and graduated with a BA in English and History from London University. Have been interested in drawing, painting and art in general since my teen years and am mainly self-taught, but since I started painting in London I attended various drawing and painting classes. I also enrolled and attended for 6 months the Cottini Art School (Liceo Artistico Cottini) in Turin, Italy in 2006. For the last 6 years I have attended weekly painting classes at Circolo Visivo in Turin - a painting tudio under the supervision of two painters - Marco Longo and Carlo Giaccone - where I now live and work. In the last few years have also become interested in photography.
