Artist's Statement

My works are inspired by the natural places I grew up in. I come from a land perched between the sea and the mountains, known as Karst, near Trieste in Italy. It is a land of high rocks, deep caves, and oak and pine forests. This land and the nearby Alps have very much influenced my love for nature.

These, at times, harsh environments, have made me appreciate the importance of having a home to return to, a place to be safe and protected. So my art is very much influenced by nature and by a sense of cosiness that comes from needing a place to come back to. This is why I love using a warm material like wool to make art.

The paintings are needle felted and soft to the touch. They are of large sizes to fill the space with warmth and colour.

I also work with other media such as wood and decorate furniture and lamps.
