I have always believed that art is the true and only expression of ourselves, the world and the life we live. It is an experience away from the codified and the limits of our standard communication. Art and specifically painting (in my case) is my way of sending a message to the people around me, trying always to transmit feelings and emotions without barriers. Presenting to my audience the freedom of infinite interpretations.

I have always been inspired by art. Having lived in Italy, France and Australia – people, faces, streets, life, markets, shapes and moments in time…. Every place has a different story to tell. Since moving to Hong Kong from Australia, it was clear to me that it was time to get the paint brushes out and let my mind draw my story of Hong Kong. This city inspires me every day: the sounds, colours, smells, words and images. There is always something happening.

My parents are originally from France, but I was born and raised in Milan, Italy. I remained there until I was 18 years old. I then moved to Paris and began my studies at Ateliers Met de Peninghen and later graduated from Ecole de Communication Visuelle (ECV) in graphic design and illustration.

These are my first paintings which express my feelings about this city; I tried to keep the colours, materials and ambiance of each painting, as close as I could to what I could feel.

At the moment I am inspired by everything that makes this city unique in my eyes:
The streets, the markets, the people, the traditions…. I still have many more stories to tell but I hope you will enjoy this first little adventure.
