I am an artist currently living and working in Milan where I finally fulfilled my artistic career. Five years ago I enrolled in a Ba Hons in Painting at the Brera Academy in Milan, which ended in 2018. In my studies in Milan, I have been strongly supported by my teachers to explore my artistic talent, and today, I am busy researching and studying new techniques to improve my art.
