Materials and Research


There is a knowledge that rises with doing that overcomes every theory.
This is why working with hands gives back the truest sense of independence and at the same time, the extraordinary perception of being endowed with something precious.
When that know-how settles in an artistic research, something special happens.
In a process in which creative thinking, capable of producing new, finds that value of uniqueness.
The materials are prepared by thinking how to give strength and beauty to the painting that will come.
Searching for a fuller awareness of paint doing, the paintings here are made following the ancient techniques of Italian ateliers in 14th and 15th centuries.
The oil or watercolor paint is produced by hand starting from the pigment powder.
Canvases and boards are also hand prepared, using ancient imprimatura.
In this way the paint penetrates better the chosen support ensuring an excellent performance over time.
Thus painting becomes first of all knowledge of the material. In a somewhat alchemical vision, it will be creation starting from matter, which will live from its original state until it becomes an artwork.
It is therefore a rediscovering of the potential of gestures found again in what, before anything else, is an handcraft.


After extensive artistic research with materials it was possible to developed a natural mineral painting method an ecologically conscious approach rooted in ancient techniques yet profoundly contemporary in its handcrafted color creation, moment by moment.
By eschewing pre-made tubes with a pre-established color, (which is not always the one truly desired), these colors emerge to life guided solely by the artist’s feeling and intuition, resulting in a truly unique creation that melds seamlessly with their support. It is thus possible to rediscover ancient techniques in the light of a new vision, feeling the matter while experiencing a transformative alchemical process.

This time, also in the figurative art, the gaze takes us far towards the need for a living painting that listens to the environment and the human being, in a relationship of dialogue towards processes of pure creation starting from a new way of knowing, to act on matter and the relationship with it.

This research into a feminine design birthed a “Workshop on Tour” in 2023, spanning various cities in Italy and now expanding internationally.
