Born in Itri, Italy, Where I spent my childhood before coming to New York City, where I received my education BFA, MFA, and my first success. So lucky, I am able to return to my roots and the old world with all its charm, at least every year, once, where I still keep a studio on the Via Appia.

As an artist I have had an have several showings and representations in Italy, Germany, Russia and many in the USA as well, including: New York, Iowa, North Carolina, Maryland, Georgia, and Florida
I was represented by several Galleries, mostly in New York City, before moving back to Italy for some years, to pursue my passion to paint, to teach at University (Napoli) and to tend my Olive Grove.

On returning to America in the early nineties, I taught at Universities and Colleges in the Winston-Salem, Greensboro N.C. area, where I became a professor in the visual arts, before finding paradise in Venice, FL where I now reside, create, and paint.
