My training began as a child when at the age of ten. I was watching my father teach my older sister how to paint. It was like magic to me! I knew at that moment what I would be doing for the rest of my life.In the empty margins of all my notebooks in early grade school there were tiny heads sketched in with pencil, pen, crayon, anything that would make a mark on paper. There were classmates, teachers, the principal, the janitor, anyone who happened to pass my way. If they had an interesting face, the compulsion became overwhelming, and I had to stop whatever I was doing and grab a likeness.
In 1990 I have muved in Rome- Italy and there I had the oportunity to work in the art restoration field . I have been working beside the best teachers of the era . It was there that I started to know and deeply love the great paintings. I learned from gilders, carvers, cabinetmakers; never forgetting to see the world with the marvelling eyes of a child and to represent it with the skill of a good artisan. I was selected from a number of greates restorers to restor Fontana della Barcaccia (English: "Fountain of the Old Boat")which was completed in 1627 by Pietro Bernini and his son Gian Lorenzo Bernini:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z6gH8a3Sfo ,Villa Medici:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocmh2DFPZuo ,Palazzo Milesi painted in 1522 by Caravaggio and Maturino Fiorentino,Porta Pia ,is a gate in the Aurelian Walls of Rome,A 1561 bronze commemorative medal by Gianfederico Bonzagna shows an early plan by Michelangelo,I have repainted and restored room of parrot situated in the church of the Santissima Trinit? dei Monti (often called merely the Trinit? dei Monti).
In 2007 I have moved in London and I decided to get back into my first love, painting, to see just how proficient I could really get looking forward to the challenge of making each consecutive painting the best I have ever done.
