SHORT BIOGRAPHY

Welcome to my home page of my official website.

Iam going to introduce myself to you so that you can get to know me a little bit.

I was born in Castel di Lucio, an ancient Norman town in the Nebrodi Mountains of Sicily where I spent my early childhood.

I studied foreign languages and cultures in Florence, Milan (Italy), Stamford (England) and Zurich (Switzerland).  

I attended drawing classes for 5 years with the sculptress, Mary Ann Lucchetti in her Art Studio in Florence. Regarding the painting techniques I am completely self-taught.

I began my artistic career, officially, in the 90's taking part in numerous national and international painting competitions, with numerous awards and mentions by the critics and press. All awards, mentions, reviews received are all in my biography page.

​I have been exhibiting in various group and one-man shows in Italy and abroad.

Currently I am living in Montespertoli (Florence Tuscany) as well as in specific period of the year in my parent's house in Sicily. 

I am a contemporary artist, I work both in a formal and informal expression.

I love all sort of mediums, every medium allows me to express in a different way. I work with soft pastels on paper, oil and acrylic on canvas, mixed media on wood panels.

​I first started painting with soft pastels and I thought pastel painting was really great and for me is still great. I really had good time to paint with pastels. It was a very interesting experience. I began using pastels because they allowed me to express myself in a very simple and genuine way. Pastels have enabled me to lend expression in a more agile, faster, luminous manner, linked more to the emotive nature of the thing that the material reproduction of the object. This as I said at first step.

After a few years I began to work with acrylic and I enjoyed it very much. 

I have developed  during the years a special acrylic technique giving me the chance to formulate new transparencies of colors, creating the matter of the objects through various layers of pigments, enabling me to achieve vibrant effects.

After acrylic I came across the oil painting.

I have been painting with oil medium now for 8 years.

I have many reasons why I take up this enjoyable art technique. At the beginning I was daunting but at the end I have been conquered by oil. I feel this medium has something mysterious, has a tactile pleasure, has a buttery consistency, has a distinct scent and it has sensors delight.

At the beginning my art was inspired by my native region Sicily (could be the sea, a fishing boat, a beach, an old olive tree, the people), ...........by my environment where I live in Tuscany (landscapes, study of old masters of the Renaissance), or simply what was in my garden (flowers, fruits, vegetables), or even just what was on the kitchen table (still life). 

In the last years, I have been involving and inspiring by a new pictural psychological language which I express in a different way both as regard content and form.

I have been using old materials and old techniques in a contemporary design approach.

​​As well as being an artist, I also interested in lots of other things.

So, that's just a little bit of information about me but I am also interested in you, your opinions, your questions as well, so if you have any questions for me, my art, my paintings you can email me.

I hope to have a chance for to tell me what you think about my art.

So, if you want to email me you can write to this address  annanapoliart@gmail.com

I will be very glad to hear from you.

Thank you for your interest in my art.
