Born in Italy, I spent my formative years studying art and architecture in Venice and then worked as a licensed architect in Milan and Algiers (Algeria) where I developed an interest in conservation of traditional architecture. Pursuing such interests, in the early eighties, I came to study at Columbia University where I got a master’s degree in architectural preservation. However, the move to NY and the exposure to its vibrant art community also reignited my interest in art, to which I then devoted increasing time and energies, first attending the Art Student League and later obtaining an MFA at Hunter College. Eventually, over the last thirty years art-making has become the center of my working life. The recipient of several awards/grants, including the 1990 First Prize in Painting by the National Art Club, I have shown my work extensively in New York where from 1999 to 2017 I’ve been represented by the AIR Gallery.
