I love painting animals, especially birds: I like their colours, their shapes and their grace.

While choosing the subject I always aim to catch the viewer's attention by spotting unusual and scarcely known creatures, generally widespread in the area where I live (NW Italy).

And so many paintings popped up, one after the other, featuring a crab spider, a couple of bee-eaters or the snout of a least weasel, together with many other critters of Piedmont.

The works of art are divided by date into the following sections.
