From New York to the woods above Capalbio: tell me this story...
Tired of city living, around 2016 I started looking for another place to call home, ideally in a quiet and rural location. Influenced by a 2011 trip I'd taken in the Lake District with the Royal Drawing School - we were 25 artists painting and drawing daily from observation, reconvening for lunches and dinners - I sought to recreate this balance between community, creativity and nature. When a friend invited me to Capalbio, I fell in love with the landscape and instinctively knew I'd found my home. I have remained in the area ever since.
What do you see from your windows?
Currently, I see mostly olive and oak trees, with just a sliver of the sea in the distance, where on a clear day one may see the island of Giannutri.
What kind of child were you?
Quiet, timid, always the observer.
