In my early life I challenged myself by focusing on things that did not come naturally to me (e.g. studying Classics and going into Law). Yet, I tried for years to placate my internal restlessness by living in different countries and cultures (Pordenone, Padua, Denver, London, Paris, New York...); When I reached 40, with the responsibility of a mother, I settled between London and Trieste and found my outlet in what I liked and did best, namely using my hands to create.
Art exhibitions, painting and modelling clay were regular hobbies which never satiated my inherent creative nature.
Finally one day, I entered the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli, in Spilimbergo: a whole new world of WONDERS opened up.
I wanted to learn how to do it properly. I found a delightful place in London, Southbank Mosaics, where I did a first Award course - a place which I am still regularly and enthusiastically attending twice a week. Then I attended a course in Roman mosaics at Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli, another Certificate at Southbank Mosaics, other courses in Byzantine and Modern mosaics in Spilimbergo, and promptly enrolled on many other courses… Italy, Turkey, and what else!
Whilst developing my own style, my aim is to constantly push myself beyond my creative boundaries: experimenting with different subjects, colours, materials, textures, depth, tools or methods…I have finally found my calling.
