I am a visual artist and art teacher known for my experimental works concerning the interaction of light and matter and colour perception.

Initially trained in the traditional oil painting techniques of the old masters, in the last decade I combine the traditional Japanese Nihonga and the European classical painting techniques.

I work on large canvases of unprepared linen using only natural materials, such as charcoal, seawater, gallnuts, walnuts, earth, algae, lichens and mushrooms.

My works are characterized by their austere simplicity, their sincerity and unfeigned naturalness.

Japanese philosophy is deeply rooted in my life and work.
