I have a gift, that enriches my life, gives me peace and blisses me with magic. I paint.
And I want to share this gift with you: you’ll have an original, unique painting, inspired by one of your favorite photos.
Painting is freedom, therapy, a form of meditation. It’s focusing on the beauty, on the wonder, on the magic. It’s studying every little detail of reality, and then forgetting about what reality is, and what I am. Expressing how I feel. Exploring the infinite possibilities that we all can live and imagine, and just letting a white paper, or canvas, come alive. Getting in contact with the part of me that my rational mind can’t completely grasp, connecting with intuition, listening to it.
In order to create your Couple Painting, we’ll choose together your favorite photo of the shooting. Then you’ll choose the style you prefer, the one which fits most your taste, your nature. After that, with a little time, I’ll work on it and when it’s ready, I’ll mail it to you.

I always loved drawing and painting. At primary school, I was the best of the class. But, as for photography, music and writing, I’ve been told that painting was not an important activity in my education. “Art doesn’t feed you”, that’s what I’ve been told. Then, at 28, I had a very difficult moment. I had a job I didn’t like, I felt alone, I had no joy, or purpose in my everyday life, I felt trapped.
If I try to go back with the memory, I actually don’t remember what happened and how I decided to re-start drawing, after years and years. I just started. For a second, I stopped thinking about what I HAD to do, and just did what I FELT LIKE doing. I myself was so stunned about how easy and natural and relaxing and joyful it was, and how satisfied I was with the result. It was like I discovered I had a superpower!
Over time, I taught myself, and I had the chance to see my works exhibited in Rome, Ferrara, Puglia, to paint on the walls of many rooms, to illustrate stories, songs and books. You can see my paintings page or follow me on Instagram. In these years, I met so many people that told me to choose between painting and photography.
But I just can’t. And I don’t want to! I should give up and refuse a part of myself. So I decided, instead of choosing between them, to merge them and connect them together. Isn’t it all connected, in the end? I had the gift of being able to do what I do, with no effort, with joy and pleasure, and I want to share it with others.
Because it isn’t all about money, I think. It’s about connections, it’s about sharing emotions, it’s about L O V E ♡
