I was able and loved to create beautiful dresses from scrap of fabrics, I was years ahead with the up-cycling…:-) I learned all the secrets to perfectly sewing from my mom, that was precious to me to learn such a great skill, that was perfect for my passion, and benefit me later in life as useful for my Fashion Design freelance, and job positions as Fashion Expert for several nice brands. I have in my plan for the future, to add to my Jewelry Collections also some unique and one of a kind fashion designs Collection.

4) Talking about Fashion my favorite store here in US which I loved as soon I discovered it is:

for my BDay

6) I am Italian and who doesn’t like Italian food!!! I love to cook, and I am creative also while cooking I don’t like too much to follow recipes, I mean I do…but I like to put my own twist to it and also I love to create my own dishes from scratch!

My soul is deep blue I don’t know why but if I have to imagine what color is I see it in all the shades of blue. My soul is very receptive and absorbing a lot from the outside. Is very balanced but sometimes can have some great picks on things I like and love. My soul has perseverance and takes challenges I am always been thinking “if you don’t try you never know!” I refer this quote to my Art and creativity! My soul fight for what I believe in. My soul wouldn’t ever tried things that would harm myself in a negative way. My soul is encouraging and positive to others and myself.

2. What are you working on right now?

Right now I am working mainly on my Jewelry Collection on custom orders and non! I am trying to promote my creations and online stores as I want to share them with the world. I am also working on designs for other future projects I have in mind. I always keep sketching and I take notes of any kind of creative idea pops in my mind. I also took a break for a while from watercolor painting and I would like to go back on it soon! In the main time instead painting I am more working on Digital Art who I love. There are so many things that my creativity lead me to want do that I feel like I don’t have enough time during the day!

3. What is your creative dream project?

My Dream Project it is a real dream! One day I would love to be able to have my own Atelier Studio Gallery in a nice place, where I can work, display and sell all my creations of every kind together. This magical place will reflect my Art and taste in everything from the interiors to the products I design extends to Fashion, Jewelry, Art and Interiors it would be so magical what I have in mind…for now my Atelier is virtually here on YesterdayAfter taking shape day after day… the future? Who knows never say never… 🙂
