I grew up in the Dolomite region of Northern Italy and studied at the Istituto d'Arte di Ortisei, Bolzano and the Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino. As well as paper pulp art, I have produced work in a variety of media including gesso, printmaking, installations and bookworks. I currently live and work in London and hold regular exhibitions in galleries and cultural centres both here and in Italy. I'm married to an author/illustrator of children's picture books and have two children.
