Where to begin?
I was born here in Italy and it's where I spent the first twelve years of my life; moved to Lebanon in 2007, lived there for six years (and a half), then finally moved back to Italy in 2013. Having relatives in both Poland and Egypt, I traveled extensively throughout my childhood, and still do.
Horses have always been an integral part of me -- I sat on a horse's back even before I began to walk.
As for art, I used to refuse doing school work back in first grade, because I preferred drawing instead. But it wasn't until 2007 that I started taking art more "seriously". I took up photography in the same year.
Inevitably, the horse has always been my favourite subject. Through art, both painting and photography, I hope to capture what I love most about them -- their free spirit, their wild side. I do love other animals besides horses, namely: tigers, dogs, rabbits, tortoises, birds, salamanders, ladybugs, dragonflies, and snails. I've been a vegetarian since I was twelve years old and plan to become vegan.
I speak English, Italian, and a tad of Arabic and Polish. I’d love to study Latin and Japanese.
I don’t feel comfortable enough yet to consider myself an Artist, but I dream of becoming a freelance artist specializing in equine subjects. For now, I'm still in the exploratory phase, trying various medium and branching out to other subjects. And I draw fan art from time to time -- because why not?
I hope I didn't bore you with my bio.
