About

 

Margherita always enjoys telling people about her childhood in Italy. Her grandma used to tell her friend: “she is so good with her little hands”, when Margherita used to help her make orecchiette, a kind of homemade pasta. She remembers making jewelry with rocks and yarn at the beach, drawing portraits of her friends and family for Christmas and always feeling an irrepressible need to do something with her hands. As much as she tried to do other things with her life, art always found her way back to her. She traveled and explored Europe, America, Africa, and even moved to the United states, where she is now making art, every single day. As a child, Margherita was very shy. Drawing and painting was her way to express her voice into the world. Everywhere she would go she would draw something, even at the restaurant, at the doctor’s or on an airplane. She is now about to graduate in Studio Art at the University of South Florida, in Tampa, where she learnt how to use a lot of different mediums, tools and explored the History of Art in detail. Painting is now her tool to share her own life experiences, as a woman in the 21st century. Her paintings describe her daily life struggles with a bit of humor, as a reminder to not take life too seriously. She is also working a collection of female nudes, that have been empowering a lot of women around her, highlighting their beauty with extremely bright and happy colors.
