[Born in: Italy / Live in: Italy / Female]

25 Novembre 1978 (Savona, Italy)
"I'm a Photographer, Video Artist, Performer, Creative/Graphic Designer.
I'm passionate about visual arts and performing dance since I was a child, already fascinated by the mystery of the human body, human energy, space and colours. At the age of 9 I'm chose contemporary and jazz dance, but I didn't feel a dancer, but something different.
At the age of 13 I attended the "Art Institute" (Imperia, Italy), where I'm learned the art of photography, direction Tv/video, graphic designer.
I'm graduated at the age of 17 in photography, direction Tv/video (analogue technique), graphic design.
I'm graduated at the age of 21 in photography and direction video/Tv (sound and vision psychology, editing, Shooting and image processing, visual communication, scenography, set lights, at the "CTC" Studios, Film and Television Techniques School (Milan, Italy)
Over the years, I'm approached lots of different dance styles, Contemporary, Jazz, Modern, Afro (with Jean N'Diaye "Ballet National du Senegal), Latin Dance.
I'm also attended an extra-curriculum Theater course which helped her develop her knowledge on time and motion in art by practising stage presence, gesture, vocal/breathing technique, vision of art in motion.
In 2008 I left my secure job in graphic design and photography agency and every style of choreography dance to start working as a freelance visual artist (photographer, creative designer, video artist, art director) and performer (body installation, improvisation) related at personal conceptual art project/collaborations.
I'm then started pursuing more personal projects, such as conceptual self-portraits and self-shootings.
My photos and videos are conceptual self-portraits. Are dialogues with myself.
In 1010 I'm moving to Berlin to isolate myself from my language, my culture, my habits, my people, my warm italian colors, to find concentration and inspiration for my new evolution.
I returned to Italy after two years and currently I living and working in Milan (Italy) where I'm involved in photography, video art, performances, creative design, brand performance experience and art director.
Through photography, video art and live performances my body gives itself freely as a symbolic and psychophysical means of exchange with myself, the world, the time, the space."
