I am an emerging artist who has been learning to paint by following and purchasing online tutorials and classes. I am now taking my artistic talent to the next level by studying the Bachelor of Visual Art with the Adelaide Central School of Art and additional painting classes. I have always had a passion for painting and drawing, but painting is my forte. My grandfather who lived in Italy was a great artist, he painted anything and everything, he never went to school to practice art - he was born with the gift. My uncle, his son, grew up to be a very talented artist and singer, he can sing all of Elvis Presley songs in his voice and drew for catholic churches in Italy such as the 'Passion of the Christ' angels, saints etc. No one in the family followed my grandfather or my uncle footsteps, so I am determined to make my grandfather proud by working on my passion and love of art - even though he no longer lives, but I know he is watching over me. Even though I have lots to learn, my persistency, determination and passion will see me succeed and I look forward to sharing my artwork with the world. I use both acrylics and oil mediums and am fascinated to paint anything that is bold, colourful and elegant.
