I am extremely happy to announce to be featured in these publications: Vanity Fair and House and Garden UK.

Let me tell you the story behind it.

It’s morning. I was going through my emails and I immediately saw an email that captured my attention right away.

It was signed by a company that I know very well: Condé Nast, a global mass media company ( Vogue, The New Yorker, GQ, Vanity Fair, Wired, Architectural Digest, and much more).

I recognized the signature immediately and that drove all my attention to it. The morning was just started, was sipping my morning coffee when I stumbled upon this email.

I scanned it and my enthusiasm increased

I quickly showed the email to Stacy, and we were immediately excited.

“How did they find me”, I thought immediately… “that is unexpected”. The email was asking for an online meeting to follow up and further the conversation.

They reviewed my website and they wanted to offer me the opportunity to showcase my artwork.

I remember it was a weekend but I answered immediately anyway.

The following Monday I received the answer to my previous email. The lady who wrote the email scheduled a phone call for the next day.

We talked about my career and what I was up to. She asked me to provide some pictures and some captions.

Today I am standing here with these magazines and my name on them. I think about how much work was done but also how nice is to overcome some obstacles once in a while.

My journey started 20 years ago, I was attending the Fine art academy. I wasn’t strong enough at that time to believe in myself and pursue my career so I quit.

A wandering lasted 20 years that finally brought me back home like Odysseus. After many traps and pitfalls, I am back to painting.

And I also published my first book!
