  • Description

    Hi! If you're not scared by funny and blitzed on energy woman, addicted of art, music, books and adventure... you've come to the right profile!
    I'm an italian painter and illustrator with a deep passion and experience in teaching. I'm curios and willing on knowing people, places, and everything different from me. That's why I love using my artistic job to discover the world. I deeply trust in sharing as a essential feature of life, and what enrich travel and experiences (therefore, I've been using alternative travel methods as Couch Surfing and different services of car sharing for years).

    Something about my experiences (maybe more interesting than this):
    In 2018 I've curated the opening of an art school in China, where I lived for 6 months and work as director and art teacher. I've work with kids and adult, from different backgrounds and with different stories... has been a beautiful experience! In the last months I've been working mainly in public schools, with children (5-6 years old) and youth as graphic design professor. To me, teaching is the other aspect of artistic creation: in the same way you give and share your personal life mission to others, and it's a mutual exchange of energy

  • What else ...

    I've been practicing yoga regularly for one year and I love to paddle in the water to swim or just to relax in a SPA.
