Born and raised in Italy, my education and work experiences have been in business until 2010, when I relocated to Columbus and started painting every day and taking art classes.

My passion for color and texture is reflected in my paintings. After several years working with oils, I’m currently creating with acrylic and mixed media.

I love to add abstract features in the form of unexpected patterns and marks that add visual interest and catch the viewer’s attention. The resulting work is vibrant and happy.

My work has been shown in several shows all over Ohio and is in private collections in the United States, Spain, and Italy.

You can find examples of my work on my website, at my studio at High Road Gallery & Studios, in Worthington, OH and at Marcia Evans Gallery in the Columbus Short North Art District.

When I’m not creating art, I write about creativity and the creative process. I’m passionate about sharing with others what I’ve been learning, and I have authored many online articles published on and other sites.

I am also very active in the local artistic community, serving as an officer of the Dublin Area Art League and being an active member of the National League of American Pen Women.

Artist Statement

My love for color and for the beauty in world around us inspires me every day.

I like to create inspired by positive thoughts and hopefully my work will carry that positivity to the viewer.

Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
