I was born in 1965 in Venice, where I studied History of Art and later trained with Emilio Vedova.

I use a wide variety of materials and techniques to explore decline and regeneration within urban culture and make sense of the dynamic process of change and transformation within a variety of environments.

I have shown my work in a wide variety of contexts: traditional solo and collective shows; indoor and outdoor performance and installation projects in collaboration with other artists and musicians: in particular, a performance at the 2001 Venice Biennale, the 2002 Liverpool Biennial, a series of shows at the Unity Theatre and Bluecoat Art Centre in Liverpool in 2004, Modern Art Oxford in 2008 and most recently a personal show at Taplow Court near Maidenhead. Most recently I have been focusing on private commissions, inviting people into my studio to see my work or taking my work onto the streets in interdisciplinary live performances.
