A drop in the Ocean.

“We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.”
Mother Teresa


my name is Francesca and I am an artist working mainly with watercolor.
I have a "room of my own" on a sunny terrace full of plants, where I love to sit, think, imagine and paint.
The centre of my attention is the language of colous, the infinite emotional echoes they generate, and their symbolic meaning. My work is also particularly inspired by the observation of Nature (leaves, trees, seeds, pods, flowers, archetypal forms of life, natural elements, pebbles, minerals, fossils, fractals…) as a form of meditation upon the facts of life and spirituality. In the series "Quello che resta. That what remains" I've been working on the concepts of casualty and reuse.

I've exhibited my paintings in Italy and abroad, and my artworks are part of private collections in Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany, Australia, Ireland, United States and Canada.

    I live and work in Florence, Italy. Painting makes me relaxed, concentrated and positive, being a form of special, creative meditation and people who visit my exhibitions say it shows from my work. This is a special reward for me.

Thank you for your visit.
It is a pleasure for me to share my work with you.
Please read carefully my shop policies, and if you still have questions, do not hesitate to contact me, I will be glad to answer.


Each watercolour painting is original and one of a kind.
Each painting is dated, titled and signed on verso.

High quality materials. Top class colours with a great permanence, brilliance and lightfastness and italian cotton paper of various weights, rough (textured finish) or plain (smooth finish).

Works on paper are always quite fragile, please read the following suggestions to keep your artwork at its best.
WATER: Water and moisture can damage paper and colours. Moreover these artworks are never sprayed with a fixative finish, to let paper and colours “breathe”. Please be very careful in handling the works and … remember not to sneeze on them!!
LIGHT: Keep away from direct light because it could alter colours.
FRAME: Choose a UV protection frame and acid free or archival matt material.

PAPER: In watercolour painting pigments are diluted with water, this is why paper can sometimes be slightly cockled. The paper usually returns to be completely flat if pressed under a weigh (under a heavy book for instance).
COMPUTER SCREENS: Please remember that different computer screens can alter colors.

Please note that sale of artwork does not transfer copyright. Artist retains all copyright privileges and protections. That means you can own the actual artwork but not the copyrighted image. Artwork may not be cut and pasted, published, copied, or reproduced in any way without written permission of the artist. Thank you for respecting the work of the artist.
