Born in L’Aquila, January 14, 1959.

I work as cartoonist and illustrator.

Between the late seventies and mid-eighties, I created short comic stories for various italian magazines (1984, Tilt, Cioè…), and a fantasy graphic novel for the Italian market, Pieter Van Auger.
In the eighties I also worked for the animation studio of Gianni Peg, where I realized backgrounds and animations for dozens of short films for the RAI (Italy’s national public broadcasting company).
In the nineties I went back to work as a comic book artist with the ESP series, published by Universo publishing, and horror comic books scripted by Paul Aleandri and published by Francesco Coniglio’s Acme.
In 2005 I drew the first issue of the fantasy comic book Adam au Chromaland for the French publisher Les Humanoides Associès. Then I drew another fantasy comic book published into two volumes, La Vallee des Mutants, for the French publisher Clair de Lune. For the publisher Lo Scarabeo, I drew Cards of Dreams, The Tarot of Metamorphosis, and now I am finishing another job: The Tarot of the Surrealists.

In my spare time I carry on my work as a painter, with commissions and group exhibitions, including the 54th Biennial of Art in Turin, organized by Vittorio Sgarbi, where I exhibited the work Venexia (oil and acrylic on canvas).
