So I finally pushed myself into creating a website to share my work and blog about art! Before I begin my art ramblings I wanted my first post to be a little about me and my family. So here I go, I was born as a first generation Canadian in Toronto during the sunny days in late August. My parents were both born in Italy and moved to Canada where they met, married and had my sisters and me. We were raised by our beautiful mom and nonna, our father spent most of his time building his entrepreneurial businesses. Life growing up was a little rocky in our home with old school perspectives and the difficult divorce but we survived it and it shaped us into strong, talented and confident women. I am the 2nd of the three sisters and it's always been an interesting challenge from borrowing (without telling) each others clothing to experiencing the wonderful and sometimes not so wonderful times together. But hey that's life and I'm thankful we're together. Above are a few old and new pictures.The top left photo my mother dressed me as a boy wearing a plaid tie, next are my sisters and me many years ago, and then there's a favourite of my mom and me in Mexico. The Bottom left are all us girls together at a good friends wedding and the bottom right I'm dressed as Frida from last Halloween with my soulmate (Frida's Diego).
To whoever is reading this, thank you! I hope my blog posts will inspire and entertain you!
Until the next post,
