I was born in Modena (Italy) on the Spring of 1982.
I've spent my first 20 years studying piano,guitar and violin, playing in a few metal bands and recording also a cd.
My passion for drawing never faded away and after some experiences as founder of an artistic handicraft business, I decided to channel my passion for RPG, videogames, fantasy and sci-fi starting in 2010 to study Illustration at Scuola Internazionale Comics in Reggio Emilia.
I finished art class with full marks and honours in 2013.
Most of all I painted a lot of illustrations for RPGs like 'Warage', 'Shah Mat', 'Faith Empire' and 'Forest Keeper'. I also painted many covers for different books such as 'Tales from Helleborya' and 'The Kaiserine's Vampire' (Eggplant Productions). I worked as a traditional colorist for the italian comics 'Agenzia Incantesimi Reloaded' too.
In 2013 one of my illustrations has been featured on a BBC programme and in 2014 one of my painting has been selected to be published in 'Infected by Art'.
Through the years I've won first place in different contests such as 'Disegna l'Apocalisse' by Paolo Barbieri and Chrysalide Mondadori , 'Succhiasangue Contest' by Scuola Internazionale Comics and 'Sexy & Chaotic contest' by Federico Memola.
My artworks have been published on different magazines (Dartzine, Skillism Visual Creativity,Mi Natura,Wanderer Magazine,Templum,Little Book of Monsters Vol.1, Kingdom of Fantasy..) and they have also been displayed at the following exhibitions: Bee Live, Grifio Art Gallery.
