Rosso Emerald Crimson

London, United Kingdom
I use portraiture and self-portraiture to explore and analyse myself and the world around me. Taking inspiration from personal memories along with observations from real life and imagination, the imagery I create often unveils the vulnerability and strength of the human condition.


Themes addressed revolve around identity, femininity, gender, sexuality, motherhood as well as ethical and political issues. They are carried out by predominantly female characters who enact a ‘persona’ or stereotype that resonates with the viewers at various levels of the subconscious mind.

I have learned in the academic painting tradition and in years of practice I developed a contemporary version of realism which combines elements of abstract expressionism, mixed media, and occasionally collage to create a visually engaging imagery. Whereas I find in classicism a powerful vehicle to express the plethora of human emotions, my painting method is constantly evolving and driven more by what is still unknown to me than by the tested and established.
