I was born and raised in Florence, one of the most praised cradles of art.
After having a degree in Visual Arts and Graphic Design from the Accademia Cappiello, I have experimented with many techniques and software, practicing graphic and fabric design as well as designing labels for prestigious wines in the famed Chianti region.
My experience has spanned from Florence, where I worked for Architectural Studios and the celebrated Couture Sportswear Company ‘Proof of Florence’, into some Fabric Design Studio established
at New York.
When raising my loved ones, I created ‘Antologia di Sassi’ (‘The Stones’ Anthology’, acalamai.com). My paintings are in private collections in Tuscany, Rome, Milan, Lecce New York, NY, the Hamptons, NY, Vail, CO and Watch Hill.
Writing and illustrating children novels was at the back of my head for a while, and now, as an empty nester, I'm enthusiastically embarking on this new and exciting venture.
