What is your training background?
My mother was an artisan, specialized in decorative arts, with good manual skills. I went to art school, later on I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, in Palermo and Seville, where I firstly studied painting.
Why didn't you become a painter?
I started feeling closer to printing and so I decided to deepen my knowledge of it and I specialized in printmaking techniques. Later on I bought the presses and all the necessary to set my first personal studio up. In 2016, I began my first collaboration with a Sicilian painter.

Do you ever get bored?
If it is true affirming there are movements and processes apparently repetitive, such as a print of an edition, is also true that each graphic work being unique, always inspires to find new unexpected solutions. Impossible get bored!
What do you like about dealing with the artists?
Every artist has a different approach to art, as a consequence different languages to express themselves. Working with them allows me, without authorship, to participate with my contribution to disparate creative processes.
