I’m a visual artist with a multidisciplinary background. Able to stretch boundaries between disciplines, I have been using my multiples knowledges and skills to develop a professional path as designer, artist and educator.
My experimental art practice engages with the contemporary and seeks to express it through a variety of languages. I work with mixed media including graphic design, ceramics, risograph printing, screenprinting and stop-motion animation. I have a vivid interest in self-publishing, poised as it is at the intersection between visual arts and design, and I have produced art books and fanzines that have been exhibited in exhibitions and book fairs.
My practice is rooted in a social dimension: I have run several art workshops focused on developing an awareness of political and personal issues through self and group expression. I have worked on topics like inclusive cities, women empowerment, the relationship with environment and natural resources. I have a + 4 y. experience as educator, running creative workshops addressed to all sorts of audiences: from kids to adults, including elderly and disadvantaged people as well.
Since 2017 I collaborate actively with Casa Internazionale delle Donne (International House of Women) in Trieste, where I curate exhibitions and creative activities.
