In the end it's all a game In the end it's all magic In the end, perhaps, it's all just a dream ...
I like to find new ways to enrich my way of seeing watercolor, I am curious about the possibility of contaminating water painting with other techniques, to make what I do more and more personal.
I started teaching watercolor by chance, showing what I had learned from my teachers and adding what was my vision.
I found myself with people, who have become important for me and my work, because they made me understand how much I like to transmit the passion for water painting and how much this can contribute to enriching personal relationships.
Presenting my watercolors, my vision of the world and how I interpret it with colors and water, has always given me that adrenaline rush to already think about how to go further, but since I added writing, everything has changed.
It's not just about exposing snapshots of my life leaving the viewer the faculty to see what they want, now I also tell my story.
For this reason, presenting my work is not always easy, it means exposing oneself, getting naked, but I feel I have to do it, because telling about me now, makes me recover the me of the forgotten years, and recovering the me of the past, it also makes me recover all my dreams.
Now the beauty is not only painting, but presenting what I create, so that it speaks of me and for me, it is inviting you to be part of my life, my story and my telling me ...
What about why I started painting, it's not easy.
Maybe I started because I've always done it ...
Because it is one of the first memories I have, even before knowing how to write I already drew.
Maybe I started painting because it was always easier to talk with color than with words.
Because I fell in love with watercolor this I know!
Because I was lucky to have cousins, who as a child introduced me to water painting, and in the eyes of a child watercolor can only seem like magic!
All this, combined with the fact that I do not like to talk and prefer to write, made me choose watercolor, the "poetic painting" par excellence!
In the same period I also began to write, fairy tales, to tell my daughters then small, so I also reopened another drawer of dreams, closed for years, that of writing.
What do I paint?
What makes my heart beat faster !!!
Places, things and people that I love or that make me suffer.
What I see every day and is part of everyday moments.
What I see with the eyes of memory ...
The colors of silence or colors and that's it.
Or, more simply, where I would like to be and can only get there with fantasy.
I also enjoy painting and telling stories with images of angels, cats, owls and Santas, while I do it I laugh, I laugh a lot, I am cheerful and I find myself talking to my characters!
I tried to imagine my world so that it could always be carried with you, that it could be told with the stories of others, that it could be guarded, forgotten and then found in the pages of books.
This is how my little paintings for writing and reading were born!
Painting becomes telling, then painting is linked to writing in an indissoluble form, together they become a story of emotions, memories and silences that are my story, that are my life ...
I start painting to realize the dream closed in the drawer of desires and I start writing again. Now I'm here to realize what goes through my mind and I wait for fantasy, chance or luck to make me catch some other dream
