was born in 1975 in San Marino, where she lives and works. Having graduated in Psychology, she is known for her fluid and instinctual approach to painting, which she uses to portray the psychopathology of everyday life. Her figurative paintings are set in oppressed and oppressive spaces with osmotic and unusual colours, and depict situations, things and people that are both unsettled and unsettling. In 2018, she joined Scouting, a group of artists led by Eleonora Frattarolo. Frattarolo asked her to take part in the film show CHILD ABUSE, a European project combining Art and Medicine to raise awareness about child abuse, with a focus on contemporary art.
