BE WHAT YOU DO.
DO WHAT YOU ARE.
After classical studies she enrolled in the Painting course at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts.
Her artistic research, inextricably linked to the book, both as a literary source of inspiration and as a formal support, takes the shape of artist’s books.
‘In the beginning was the book’ and, even before that, the sketchbook with its bound pages in whose intimate dimension, to be discovered by leafing through, she found hers.
Placed within it, the images of the mind - initially faces - acquired order and coherence, becoming sequences of unknown stories.
Subsequently growing the need to equip the pages with a more structured narrative, she began to create illustrated books that in turn drew from the pages of literature.
She paid particular attention to the mythological and fairy-tale genres and to the study of archetypes that - as symbols of human nature - they present themselves in the stories as timeless images, making these tales surprisingly current.
Alongside an investigation of the anatomy of the story, its structure and function, color has acquired body within the pictorial experimentation.
In an increasingly material stratification of oil and acrylic, it has gradually become more protagonist, taking on its own narrative dimension alongside the figures, no longer illustrations subordinated to writing, but impressions born from a text and from this become independent.
From the traditional bound pages, the books open to a research aimed at exploring the different possibilities of format and expression.
Attracted by narration and reproduction in multiples, she attended a specialization course in printmaking at "The Bison Foundation" in Florence and was also interested in editorial illustration.
