A Little Starburst About Me...
Raised in Italy, I was surrounded by the beauty of Italian art. Our rustic home was cuddled by farmland with a backdrop of the rolling hills. With the enticing aromas of my mother’s cooking surrounding me, I would empty the colors of a box of crayons onto blank white paper.
I was inspired by art from an early age, no doubt a gift passed down from my mother. She used her creativity in creating clothes for the family and knitting warm scarves and cozy sweaters. I can still recall how she made pictures using cross stitch. She inspired me with art in everyday life, filled with passion and love.
Watching my mother express her natural artistic ability, my dream was to tap into my inherited talents in the art world. Sadly, my mother passed away when I was a little more than a teenager and life took me a different direction. Suddenly, getting a job was a priority to keep our family going.
My desire to use my artistic gift has never left my soul. Guided by mother’s gift to me, I have expressed myself with ceramics, paint, pencil. Inspiration drawn from the cobblestone paths of my home country, landscapes, people and even the pets of my childhood.
I specialize in transforming photos of your most loved subjects into a timeless oil painting. This can be complete families, wedding photos, a past relative, a favorite pet, landscaping sceneries, monuments and more.
I strive to help people celebrate and memorialize their closest loved ones and unforgettable moments. I seek to transform a simple snapshot into a treasured work of art.
