I was born in Sicily, between the sea and Mount Etna.


 I work and experiment with painting and photography in my studio, in a hidden garden. I love silence and quiet places, where words and images can intertwine their different rhythms, telling unexpected stories.


 After spending several years in children's books, perfect imaginary places where you can play with words and images, writing and illustrating picture books in Italy and abroad, I decided to further my research in other directions.


 My experimentation explores the interaction between different materials and instruments, always playing with both images and words, in an attempt to capture the essence of what surrounds us every day, to tell and invent reality, places, dreams.
