headshot-resized“I was born in Italy. My education was up to 8th grade. I came to the USA when I was seventeen. My first job was pressing baby clothes. After I did gardening and landscaping, I worked in the garden of Pauline Trigère. She had many exotic plants that she wanted to look as beautiful as possible. I had to clip them all by hand. That’s when I began to see the wonders and beauty of nature.

In the late eighties, I had a massive heart attack. The doctor told me I had to stop landscaping. The first few months I did not know what to do. I started to paint but did not like it. Then I started to carve and do clay statues and I loved it.

When I walk in the woods, certain shapes of roots get my attention and I have to stop to pick them up. As soon as I put my hands on them, I see what they will look like and what they will become. My job is just to carve certain spots to highlight what I see.

I have been creating these woodcarvings for over twenty years. Some of them have been on display at the New Rochelle library and other local businesses. I have won many prizes for my artwork including first, second, and third prize.”
