OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“My first studies were in design and illustration and this has influenced all my further work. Together with my artistic vision I have developed a creative process expressed in all my projects, my etchings, drawings, and paintings. I proceed in distinct ways according to the work I wish to present. When I begin a graphic design project I must communicate a certain message. On the contrary, when I start an etching, a drawing or painting I prefer to let my intuition work.

I find it difficult to explain the way I work some of my art projects but perhaps the strongest reason is the profound pleasure I experience during the process of discovering things. Even though sometimes this brings tension and stress.

I love creating with my hands and I put the same energy into all types of art with out making distinction between crafts and design, drawing, or printing. Above all I find deep satisfaction in good, new discoveries and working hard at all aspects of my work.

I work on very different themes. These give me space to tell various situations and stories of life. I have the possibility to express emotions; shyness, delight, misfortune; through forms and lines, color and light. I draw my ideas and the lives of people, animals and actions taking place in different spaces inside paintings, prints or drawings. I enjoy profoundly the process of doing my work.”

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.”
