After studying Industrial Chemistry in high school for four years I decided to apply to the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy to study Fine Arts. I graduated from the Academy in 1987 and was offered a Fulbright scholarship to study Fine Arts at Suny Albany where I also started shooting photography. The work in this page are the drawings I created in those years. I still draw and sketch out all my ideas and consider drawing a tool for thought that coupled with writing provides invaluable thinking tools to work through ideas. Drawings are pencils, chalk coal, sanguine and pen on letter size to 50x70cm. (20x28”) paper. I used to draw on a range of papers from newsprint, Fabriano and other types of paper. All works are from the mid 1980s if otherwise noted in the lable.
