ARTEeMATERIA is taking a short break
Inspired by sea and nature .....
I live in Milano and love sea very much, I go to Venice whenever I can and I often spend my holidays in Brittany (France).
After working 20 years as an architect, I decided to dedicate more time to my true passions: photography, painting and manual work.
Some years ago I was walking on the beach, taking some pictures, and I picked up some shells, driftwood, stones.
Then I began to create my personal "still life", it means creations with shells, sand, watercolor, gold and silver leaf.
Then I tried to match my photographs whith this precious and natural materials, creating a series of collages.
In my shop you can also find some mosaics (inspired by the northern seaside too) or some small object for interior decoration.
I think everything can be interesting for my works, I like matching pieces worn out by the sea and bright new materials, a piece of driftwood and a Murano glass, a shell and a photograph.
My shop started in 2013, now I'm on Etsy, I have a website (http://www.valentinafogliato.it) and I'm on Facebook too (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Arte-e-Materia), let's give me your opinion!
