Early Passion and Creative Exploration
Born in the suburbs of Vicenza, Italy, my artistic journey began at a young age. From painting and mixed media sculptures to designing and sewing clothing, I eagerly experimented with various artistic forms.
From Milan to the Fashion Industry
At 18, I moved to Milan to pursue studies in Architecture. However, my path took an exciting turn as I delved into the world of fashion, working as a designer for renowned brands like Giorgio Armani and Louis Vuitton.
The Profound Impact of Artistic Roller Skating
Artistic roller skating entered my life at the age of 6 and left an indelible mark on my artistic development. Winning the Italian skating championship at 11 and reaching the pinnacle of the world podium at 16 with the New Age skating team from Trissino, Italy, skating became an integral part of who I am.
The Birth of Artistic Fusion
In 2020, when searching for art that reflected my experiences, I found a void in the galleries. It was then that I decided to combine the everlasting beauty of classical art with my passion for sports by creating paintings that celebrate both.
“We ART the Champions” Series
The series “We ART the Champions” emerged from this desire to merge classical iconography with sport. Each painting portrays iconic figures infused with sports details, capturing the grace, strength, and motion of athletes.
Translating Athlete’s Energy into Art
As a former world champion roller figure skater, I bring my personal experience as an athlete to my art. Through my paintings, I aim to showcase the physical and emotional intensity of sports, blending classical techniques with contemporary expression.
