To me using old pieces of wood is like going back in time.

I made my first stamps carving with my gouges directly on the lime wood matrix, then my desire to use the wood recovered from old boats that I found on the beach, has taken me to revise the building of my woodcut blocks.

Each piece is unique and handmade.

My whole activity as each piece is unique and handmade; the exclusive designs are printed with a ancestral technique which uses wood stamps shaped and made of recycled materials as shipwrecks.

All artworks are inspired by my lifestyle strongly connected with surf and nature and its harmonic beauty. I’m still chasing the dream to go back to a simple and essential lifestyle and that’s why I would contribute to share a more responsible and eco-compatible behavior towards my totally love for the sea.
