I am English-Italian and currently live in Indonesia.
I grew up surrounded by murals and artwork, learning from a young age how beautiful art could create unexpected magic. I was formally trained in London at the Chelsea College of Art then mentored by two internationally recognized artists, Francesco Colacicchi (Florence) and Leonard Pardon (London).
With an Italian background and having lived and studied in Rome and Florence, I can’t help but look to the mastery of illusion and elegance of the Italian arts and weave such great material into a more contemporary style.
I have been lucky to work with amazing clients in the UK, across Europe, the USA and here in South East Asia where I currently live. These have included leading hotels and restaurants, cruise ship companies, retailers and designers.
I have also enjoyed producing residential commissions for the most diverse set of clients from royalty, pop stars (Elton John) and sports celebrities (the Beckhams) to families a bit more like mine that simply want to bring to life to a children’s nursery or the family kitchen.
I try to “give” through my work. Within large murals or painting, for example, I always provide meticulously painted details, knowing that these will give pleasure as they are discovered over time and appreciated.
Here in Indonesia, I have enjoyed mentoring younger artists and been able to donate my time to produce artwork for a children’s hospital.
