ARTIST STATEMENT
I was born and raised a city girl in Rome, Italy, but since I moved to Australia in 2007 I discovered a love of this sunburnt country. I use the power of the visual image of the Western Australian landscape in combination with its scale and textures to explore a new place, land and culture.
I call my works ‘emotional landscapes’: they capture fleeting moments of memory with a vision that is emotional and intuitive, remembering a sunrise, looking at the earth and the sky in the sunshine or after rain; recalling the clearest azure waters, the softest sands, the brightest sunsets.

In recent years my colour palette has been soft and subtle, with a delicate, lyrical quality in which the use of 23 carat gold leaf enriches the painting with a unique luminosity and elegance, emulating the play of light triggered by the uncompromising Western Australian sun.

I work between my two studios, the one in Fremantle and the one in Gracetown, a small coastal village in the South West, where I constantly refuel on inspiration.
