Is travelling your main source of inspiration?
I have been to some of the most remote and beautiful places on Earth. A trip could last up to a whole year. I always took with me my painting tools and I acquired an extraordinary collection of the various decorative themes and patterns that I encountered along the way.
How do you use your knowledge today?
In my paintings, I try to combine my graphics studies with the oriental art
I absorbed during my trips, without forgetting the Florentine Renaissance that most of all inspired me during my training.

When did you realise that painting could be your career?
Since I was a child, I thought that I wanted to paint, but only at 22 did I realise that my medium was the brush, and not the computer. I chose this profession out of pure vocation, I couldn’t have done anything else.
Did growing up in Florence influence you?
I learned this craft mainly by looking at the wonderful frescoes in Florentine villas and churches, following in the footsteps of the Corsini sisters. If I hadn’t been born in Florence, I probably wouldn’t have followed this path. My choice was guided by my city and by the beauty I saw every day around me.
