Intro
She was born in Milan, where she still lives and where she attended the Liceo Artistico (Art Lycee), and the Brera Art Academy under the direction of Achille Funi and Mauro Reggiani, and where she studied ceramics with Roland Hetner. She began her career as a painter, contributing to numerous exhibitions both in Italy and abroad. She entered the world of jewellery with a collection commissioned by J.W. Thompson for the De Beers campaign.
Her artistic research continues, leading to the creation of jewellery that shows an increasing affinity with pictorial forms and morphology of light and movement, trying, when possible, to interpret the personality of the person who will wear the jewel.
 

Statement

My artistic experience began from drawing leading to painting. The canvas was means of expression for space, color and sign. The work began on the surface and the search was to achieve a thoughtful combination of clear, dark, signs, traces and color. The expression was sought in the chromatic fields, meaning the signs.

When I started creating jewels, I discovered the beauty and strength that shapes can communicate. Dialogue becomes enriched with another element, the intrinsic relationship between surface and shape. My artistic discovery took a step forward, revealing a relationship with the material, the hard metal sheet, which achieves a structure made of precision, rigor, and measure. The jewel, an artistic object, was to move from the meaning sought within a chromatic semantic field, to a language of form and volume. Acquiring shape the surface takes on itself to transmit lights and shadows, the form is cut to generate another surface, animated to make the geometry fluid.

The creativity of an artist, I believe, is expressed in the dialogue that he has with himself. An intense, continuous inner conversation that becomes the guiding principle of his activity, and as a result of his life. Above all, we are looking, we are searching, we are undertaking a journey, this path leads to the products of our work.
