The idea of living and practising on the sister Island of Gozo may at first thought not be the best option for a Maltese artist who wants to make a decent living out of art. My artistic formation actually took place abroad and I still consider Italy, the country which adopted me for four years my second home. Having said this, my homeland has lured me to go back to my origins. Its scenery, the beauty of its renowned places which feature regularly in my landscape and seascape paintings were hard to resist. They were and will always remain my inspiration for my drawings and paintings on canvas.
