Who am I?

I am from the Southern Switzerland, from the town of Lugano, a modern town with a fantastic lake surrounded by mountains, and it takes just 20 minutes to travel by car from the Italian border. That’s the reason why I travel to many interesting places in Italy where I received a lot of inspirations from fantastic museums and historic towns that I have visited throughout Europe.

My educational philosophy

I believe art is something that can enriches the mind and the personalities of people all around me. I think that all people have a creative side that helps them to find great ideas for amazing solutions. I believe that art is a fantastic way for our aspiring artists to express themselves, and for that reason, I am so happy to be a part of the TAS learning community.
