"As long as I can remember, I've always been captivated by the power of a good visual representation, independently if it was a photo, a painting or a graphic design; in fact when I was a child, I often went to the newsstand with my mom, and my attention was always caught by strong magazines and comic book cover images.
I soon felt the need to start representing what was in my head with any media I had around. I started with pencils and later switched to acrylics and oils, until I discovered digital painting software in 2006, which suddenly became my favourite media to create art.
I love painting people portraits, and enjoy creating fantasy, horror and erotic illustrations.
Many years have passed since my first pencil mark on paper but I still love to create images I would like to look at.
I hope you'll like them too."
