“OTTINO and the talent Made in Italy”:
Born in Florence in 1985, the mother is Italian and the father a New Yorker. Since she was small she was fashinated by pop culture and art, to which she was exposed through the music of her father’s vinyl collection, her mother’s books and grand mother’s paintings. This increased her imagination and curiosity, her ability to observe and create inner and outer worlds.
She dedicated many years to classical and modern dance. Her studies from painting, history of art,fashion and illustration improved all her skills.
After her graduation she moved to NYC; this experience pushed her in another dimension and gave her the possibility to meet a new circle of artist with whom she exhibits her works for the first time at Chelsea Hotel.
Back in Italy she attended a master at IED in Florence and started her career.She now illustrates on commission and collaborates as a set designer in Still life with the photographer Matteo Strocchia.
