I work as a painter and mosaicist in Venice. I am interested in every possible expression of art, from calligraphy to illustrations for children, from origami to prints on fabric. I also create clothes, hats, bags, knitting and embroidery. I find inspiration in the natural and in the animal worlds which allow me to enjoy using different colors, materials and supports.

Zebra - 2018

I've always thought that the animal that I like most is the zebra, because it is very elegant and indomitable. For this work I imagined a detail of a herd of zebras galloping in their natural environment, silhouetted against the yellow sunset sky. The movement of their moving bodies creates a magical effect of lines, the touch of blue on the muzzle gives a feeling of "freshness" and the eye, which looks sideways, arouses calm in the observer.

Zebra - 2018 carpet from India.

Handtufted carpets are made by hand using high quality raw materials, but rather than having knots that need to be tied, a special ”tufting gun” is used to push loops of yarn through a scrim (pre-woven backing). The last stage in the production is trimming the pile to the desired length, thereby exposing the thread ends for a softer pile.
This technique allows for a quick and effective process and gives the weaver more freedom and range to create detailed patterns and shapes otherwise restricted in handknotted carpets. The end result is a long lasting high quality carpet at an affordable price.

Wool is a natural textile fibre and one of the most sought after materials for rug making. Wool rugs are highly durable and perfectly capable of resisting wear and tear of every day use. Wool has a naturally dirt-repelling effect and is easy to keep clean. It is also flame resistant and characteristically retains it’s shape so that the pile of the rug always rises.
