Weekend of the Portrait 2022

One of my portraits ‘Sacha, my mother’ has been selected for the exhibition ‘Weekend of the Portrait 2022’ at Loods 6 in Amsterdam. The event took place from 21st until 23rd of October 2022.


‘Sacha, my mother’ 2021, oil on canvas, 40x50cm

My mother, who died in 2010, inspired me with her drawings and paintings, finding time to do it though busy with her work at the International Archives for the Women’s Movement (IIAV) and raising her two children.

Special thanks to Franco Tirletti who supports, challenge and encourage me in my work at all times.
