Artist's Statement   Simply, I'm from Venice and painting it's on my blood.

Statement      I'm Italian but I'm located also in Caversham, Reading.  
During the initial stages of a portrait commission I like to spend some time with the sitter just getting to know them.  
I study the subject by taking photographs.After selecting a few suitable compositions I supply the client with one  
canvas sketch. Here a 1 or 2 hours live sitting. Also on the final step I like to have another sitting.  
Children are welcome!  
Each painting is presented with a simple linear frame.
