Born in Rome (Italy) on 1959, at the age of 7 he moved to the small town of Fonte Nuova, a part of Mentana, the ancient Nomentum, where he is currently living. School teacher, he dedicates free time to set up his own art studio and spread online his works using social media.
Since he was a child he proved to be very fond of art, developing in particular a neverending passion for painting, which pushed him to a continuous research and experimentation of different techniques: from pencil drawings to charcoal, acrylic and above all, to oil paintings.
His paintings are impressive nature shots inspiring the observer to a total immersion. His recurring theme is the sea, whose representations received critics acclaim and sales success. In the latest years he approached the study and reproduction of major Italian Renaissance artists (Leonardo, Raffaello, and Caravaggio).
