I was born and raised in Lecce (Puglia), the most south-eastern area of Italy. From an early age I drew, danced, sang but growing up I never had the opportunity to study these arts, because I was very hindered. Forced to leave art, I devoted myself to studies in Economics from high school to university and with a particular interest in the protection of nature and the environment. After graduation and after various jobs that did not satisfy me, an existential crisis began within me and I started painting on canvas as a self-taught only in November 2013 and my first painting is called Rebirth. It symbolizes my Rebirth in art and in all aspects of my life, an instinctive anticipation of what is happening now, after a very dark period that lasted a few years, in which my creativity was once again turned off. In 2014 I did my first exhibition in my city. And the second took place in 2015. Now I finally start painting again and start a new life, in the name of art and the realization of my dreams.
