HOW DID YOU GET INTO ART AND MAKING?
I’ve always loved drawing, but I started studying art since I was 14 years old in Italy. I graduated in Fine Arts and studied Design
WHAT ART DO YOU LIKE TO MAKE?
I mostly sketch and draw, I prefer being graphical
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU USE?
Paper, ballpoint pens, watercolour, coloured pencils, linoleum, glass, iron wire, fabric and threads
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
I’d describe myself as a trained art lover, using different media to express herself
WHAT OR WHO INSPIRES AND INFLUENCES YOUR WORK?
Two of my favourite artists are Toulouse-Lautrec and Keith Haring. I like street and urban art, and contemporary art in general
HOW HAVE YOU AND YOUR WORK CHANGED OVER TIME?
I can’t honestly say this, I think I have improved my technique with a good amount of practice
WHAT CHALLENGES HAVE YOU FACED ALONG THE WAY?
The biggest challenges I am still facing are depression, social anxiety, low self-esteem and self-judgement
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT/S SO FAR? NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL?
I’ve shown two works on a group exhibition and have had loads of positive feedback from the audience
HOW DID IT FEEL TO EXPERIENCE THIS ACHIEVEMENT?
It’s such a good feeling! I’m so honoured, it’s unbelievable
WHAT DIFFICULTIES, DOUBTS OR FEARS DID YOU FACE AND HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
Am I good enough to sell? Does anyone care about my art? There are so many talented artists out there, why people should buy my art? Do I have anything interesting to say?
WHAT OR WHO HAS HELPED YOU IN YOUR JOURNEY?
The Virtual Art Studio has helped me so far, when I was stuck or insecure. My friends and some strangers helped me too with their comments, support and feedback
IF SOMEONE COULD WAVE A MAGIC WAND AND MAKE AMAZING THINGS HAPPEN FOR YOU, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM?
I’d love to be more self-confident, not fearing of failing or being rejected
