50 x 70 cm, Oil on canvas.
A long part of my life I have dedicated to the processing of this artwork, that is why I decided to name it Life.

50 x 70 cm, Watercolour.
This monochromatic watercolour depicts a woman in the rocking chair, while playing with her hands with hair,
taking a plastic pose. The whole scene is illuminated by a soft light that gives to the artwork a gentle atmosphere.

The power of colour - Charlie Chaplin:
40 x 50 cm, Watercolour.
The colour to give new life and make someway contemporary the most famous artists of the past, this is basically my goal. I wanted to choose the watercolour for the realisation of this portraits series, because it is one of the techniques I love the most, especially for the ability that has to give freshness and modernity to every subject which is performed.

I'm currently still working in the production of new works, I have not yet completed this project.

Most memorable art commission - what was the piece about, who commissioned the art, what was the experience like.
The most memorable painting that I was commissioned until now was the one who had as subject a still life. I remember well that painting, for its size, a meter in width to 70 cm in height, then big enough, and especially for the time I spent in making the flowers, it was a bouquet full of roses of various colors, around three hours for each rose.

For me it was an interesting experience and new, before then I had not devoted much time to the creation of still lifes. It was to be a gift for a birthday, and fortunately, after the long process, I managed to finish the work on time.

How you work with your clients - a short description of how you develop concepts and ideas, and collaborate with your clients.
I always try to propose what is best suited to the expectations of my clients, to understand what is the idea and how to achieve it. My greatest satisfaction is to make a person happy with my art.

What/who inspires you?
What in general inspires me the most is the nature and its reworking, figurative and abstract.
