I started experimenting with ceramics two years ago, however, I have worked with clay for a long time. My background is in sculpture and fine art. I studied in Florence and spent most of my life in Italy. I am now a Birmingham based artist, designer/maker and artist tutor at the MAC.

I am inspired by nature, skies, landscapes, art and life.

At the moment my work is focused on creating functional pieces with sculptural shapes. I work with porcelain because I love the simple clean lines that I can obtain with it and its translucency.
