Her subjects can be found in many fields of the figurative arts: landscapes, copies “en plein air”, still life, portraits, animals, human figures, nude. She has always been interested in other cultures (from a literary, figurative and pictorial point of view), both ancient and contemporary as sources of inspiration. She is a skilled painter especially of Space Art, both for contents and expression. She has always been fond of physics and astronomy. She translates such concepts with drawings and paintings, using fantasy and creativity to express even herself in her favourite field, that of Space Art.
