A dreamer and fearless adventurer, I love fairytales, magic and anything occult and mysterious. Growing up, I was always curious about what lay beyond the visual world- its secrets, patterns, geometry, light. When I paint, I make contact with the unseen, therefore, my work becomes a place of imagination and unlimited possibilities. A secret language emerges, letting the colors and shapes tell the story.
I was born in Gela, Sicily and immigrated to the United States of America in 1964. I am self taught, and began to paint in 2002 after taking a class in color theory at Parsons School of Design. My paintings and drawings have been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout New York and New Jersey and can be found in private collections in the United States, Italy and Prague.

I wanted to bring the work from my Road We All Share painting series into a third dimension, while also suggesting that we are the creators of our lives, building each day with the choices we make and the roads we choose to follow…
The Glass Ceiling
acrylic on canvas

This piece from my Road We All Share series, is an imaginary landscape of what we are all experiencing at the moment, which is to let go of what no longer serves us, break through the glass ceiling, and reach for new heights and experiences.
