I was born in the warm seaside climate of southern Italy, and grew up in a family of artists that hailed from the soft rolling hills of Tuscany. During my childhood we moved to Madrid, Spain, and finally relocated to the foothills of the majestic Dolomite mountains in Trento, Italy. After I married, I moved to Switzerland, and most recently to the Washington DC area with my husband and two children.
