I am a painter who studied Illustration at Saint Martins in 1994. For a short while, I specialised, in small paintings of Italy which were a reflection of memories from my childhood in Rome.

After finishing Illustration at Central Saint Martins in 1994 I spent four years living in Australia.

Here I was interested in Aboriginal Culture in a modern context and produced a series of drawings and paintings on the subject. In Sydney I showed my work at the James Harvey Gallery, 1+2 Artist studios group show in Roselle and the Macleay Museum. I also obtained a second post graduate degree at Sydney University in Art History.

When returning to Britain I concentrated on still lives and Abstraction and developed a series of works which I exhibited in Oxford and London. My most rewarding experience was showing at the Royal Academy show in 2006, and the Not the Royal Academy Show at the Llewellyn Alexander Galley in 2007/2008. I am a qualified teacher and I taught Art and Design at the City of Oxford College for two years.

More recently I have taught children with Autism at Lord Williams Upper School.

Several years ago I worked at Bridewell Space in Bristol on a series of works inspired by street art and the nearby coast of Weston-Super-Mare. I worked with a group of other Artists from Malta and curated a show called Monolith at Hamilton House in Stokes Croft.

In the last year, I have started to create letterpress cards with the help of Richard Lawrence in East Oxford. I sell these at Local Craft and Whole food markets. I have also started a line of notebooks and ceramic Bowls. I am also producing some street art and have some work currently on walls at the Oxford BMX Project.
