Life is my muse.

I see the overwhelming beauty

in a seemingly ordinary moment

and capture it in photographs.

____

I was born and raised

between the mountains of Northern Italy

and the Mediterranean summers in Sicily,

where my family lives to this day.

As a little girl, my family and I

moved to Puerto Rico where we lived

a tropical, richly cultural and colorful life.

I now live in picturesque New England,

where the seasons are intensely beautiful,

the air crisp, and inspiration lives

right outside the doors

of my little white cottage.

My love of travel, literature and of other cultures besides my own, lend a unique sensitivity to

the way I perceive the world around me.

Long after our memory fades,

a photograph can bring back details

long forgotten and with them,

the very essence of who we once were

and who we still are.

Thank you so much for being here.
