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.
