My work is a personal research on the beauty and poetry of the form, on the aesthetic balance that we can find in the natural elements and from which I get inspired.
These, revised with my artistic language and fused to contemporary concepts, give birth to my creations.
I use fabric to shape my thoughts.
To do this I need trained and precise movements that arise from many years of experience and my deep commitment to the craft of making.
First craftsman then artist, – because only with full control of material I can create my works exactly as I would like them to be.
