A First Generation Italian-Canadian born in Toronto, Ontario” I did not realize I was not in Italy until I attended school” although humorous and perhaps a slight exaggeration the underpinned meaning within this statement is the initial impetus which has emerged an art practice embroiled in exploring perception with interests in the “hidden”.

Artist Statement:
Life is in constant motion we move one step at a time forward trusting choices, believing we are on the right path, but things may not be as they seem. Noting the deception within perceptions makes me wonder: What if I could rewrite a specific moment in time… what then would my reality look like?  I create intuitively within interests in perception and identity and am always amazed at how embroiled it all becomes. One mark leads to another in a fluid meandering discourse. The hand guided by the unknown, transcribing thoughts and memories, making known, through colour, line and form, the hidden. Stepping past the divide, reviewing, and editing, re-constructs the exposed to an alternate perspective: a transformation to anew reality.
